Abstract
This presentation addresses the subject of enhanced R&D results and technology transfer through the involvement of industry partners. Primary emphasis is placed on the philosophy, utilization, and implementation mechanics associated with incorporating and involving industry partners in Department research programs and planning. The primary focus is the use of Cooperative Research and Development Agreements (CRADA's). Department-wide, R&D partnerships and agreements are under-utilized for a variety of reasons including, little exposure, knowledge, and understanding of partnership mechanisms; low appreciation for why its becoming essential for industry and customer participation; thoughts that partnering is impossibly bureaucratic; and the "Why should I do this?" syndrome on the part of some of our researchers and research managers. This presentation addresses the above issues in the context of examples of successfully negotiated CRADA's from four Department of the Interior agencies with the aim of opening a horizon for expanded thinking about partnerships and technology transfer. Enabling legislation is addressed (the Technology Transfer Act) and how this Law, and several others, have opened up avenues for effecting partnerships.
