Abstract

In the process of developing technologies for defense, space, and atomic energy, the federal government has invented new products and processes that could be useful in solving domestic, social problems. How can such technologies be more effectively transferred? It is argued that an interorganizational approach to technology transfer could help accelerate utilization. Federal agencies, manufac turers, and various public and private users need to work in partnership early in the process if technology is to be transferred. It is suggested that, because the key actors are autonomous and often have conflicting interests with respect to technology, it may be necessary that an outsider-or ℌbrokerℍ-take the lead in bringing them into alliance.
