Your task is to research, analyze, and discuss the processes involved in helping technologies emerge (“transition”) from the R&D environment to product development organizations so that the technologies can be incorporated into products and services which meet the needs of the consumers, businesses, and government agencies. Your research should include technology transfer processes and initiatives along with funding sources, i.e. venture capital, government grants, etc. You should also address the technology development lifecycle and the role of funding availability at each of the lifecycle stages (See NIST GCR 02-841). Address what happens when adequate funding is not readily available and what impacts that deficiency has upon the development and transitioning of technologies from labs to products.
I’ve attached an outline.
Additionally there isn’t a particular number of sources, however, all sources must be cited.
