Technology Transfer Summit Proceedings Available

October 10, 1997

The proceedings of the Technology Transfer Metrics Summit is now available from the Technology Transfer Society. The book is based on the first working conference on measurement and evaluation for the technology transfer community, co-sponsored by the Engineering Foundation and the Technology Transfer Society.

Topics include measurement of federal laboratory/university/industry partnering, state programs, intermediaries and economic development, manufacturing extension, and commercialization programs.

The 370-page proceedings brings together industry case studies, international approaches, a conference executive summary, workshop summaries, and benchmarking examples. It also includes two items which evolved from the conference itself: 1) a matrix of standard metrics by organizational sector, and 2) a metrics standardization proposal.

The cost for the publication is $75. Contact the Society at 312/644-0828 or by e-mail at to order.
