U.S. NAVAL LABORATORIES TEAM WITH NTTC FOR TECHNOLOGY TRANSFER TRAINING

 WHEELING, W.Va., June 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Employees of U.S. Naval Laboratories will receive detailed training in ways to transfer advanced technologies to American business and industry under a new agreement with the National Technology Transfer Center (NTTC).
 Navy and NTTC officials recently announced an agreement to design and deliver a specialized training program in technology transfer for U.S. Naval research laboratories.
 Lee W. Rivers, executive director of NTTC, said linkages between the private sector and federal laboratories will play an increasingly important role in determining whether U.S. business and industry will remain competitive in the global marketplace.
 "It is critical to prepare federal laboratories to transfer research results to companies that can put it to work for the U.S. economy," Rivers said. "The federal government has made a significant investment in technological research. NTTC's programs will help laboratories make that investment available to the private sector."
 Dr. Richard H. Rein, head of technology transfer at the Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) in Washington, stated, "If we are to increase both quantity and quality of our interactions with industry, it is imperative that education and training efforts of this nature be undertaken."
 NTTC, located at Wheeling Jesuit College, was established by Congress and funded through a cooperative agreement with NASA. The center works to strengthen U.S. competitiveness by maintaining an information gateway for companies to access technologies and expertise in more than 700 federal laboratories.
 Dr. Paul W. DeVore, director of the division of education and training at NTTC, explained that linking research work to the private sector through technology transfer is a new role for most federal laboratory personnel.
 "The training program we developed for the Navy will cover all topics essential to a successful technology transfer program," DeVore said. "The program will aid in the preparation of personnel for carrying out the complex business of transferring technological knowledge."
 DeVore said the result of the training program will be that technology transfer processes will become a part of everyday thinking and action by personnel at the Navy labs.
