NCHRP Synthesis 20-05/Topic 19-08 [Final (Synthesis)]

Technology Transfer in Selected Highway Agencies
[ NCHRP 20-05 (Synthesis of Information Related to Highway Practices) ]

  Project Data
Completion Date: 1/1/1989

This synthesis will be of interest to administrators, technology transfer officials, college/university educators, and others concerned with technology transfer. Information is presented on how information about new technology is disseminated and how the use of new technology is actively promoted. Technology transfer is an integral part of the research and engineering functions. This report of the Transportation Research Board describes the technology transfer process as it is carried out in state highway departments and Rural Technology Assistance Program technology transfer centers. It critically discusses various mechanisms that are used to share information (e.g., research reports, short courses, videotapes, etc.) with interested users. Methods for accelerating the process by which new technology information can be shared and used are also considered.  This report is out of print and is at Order URL: http://onlinepubs.trb.org/onlinepubs/out_of_print.htm
