UTRS has helped provide management and operational support to the Federal Laboratory Consortium for Technology Transfer (FLC), the congressionally mandated forum for technology transfer. Having served as the FLC’s Management Support Office (MSO) and Regional Support Office (RSO) contractors for the past 18 years, we fully understand the technology transfer field.
We’ve been teaching and promoting federal technology transfer (T2) since the 1990s. We have a deep understanding of the mechanisms and legislation supporting T2. We practice what we preach and have transferred technology from the laboratory to the marketplace ourselves, including a soil stabilization enzyme used in roads throughout Eastern Europe.
OUR TECHNOLOGY TRANSFER SUPPORT
The goal of technology transfer is to sustain economic growth in the foreseeable future through the development and commercialization of new technologies. Federal technology transfer programs are intended to make the most of R&D and the expertise found in both government and nongovernment organizations. To help propel these initiatives, UTRS has continued to create new tools and services to the FLC community to raise awareness of the critical technology transfer work that federal labs conduct.
