>      Would you like to learn how technology is transferred in
> Great Britain, Finland, Spain and Japan?  Or Arkansas, Michigan
> and South Carolina?  Do you need information about the federal
> laboratories and NASA's technology transfer network?  Are you
> interested in legal concerns, price and packaging, assistance
> programs and environmental issues?  What about the spiritual
> aspects of technology transfer?  What about what works?
>      The whole spectrum of technology transfer--from theory to
> practice and around the world--will be explored at the Technology
> Transfer Society's 17th annual conference in Atlanta, Georgia,
> June 24-26, 1992.
>      Some 50 speakers from industry, federal labs, universities,
> research organizations and more than a half dozen countries will
> speak on moving technological developments from the laboratory to
> the loading dock.
>      John Mannix, NASA's Assistant Administrator for Commercial
> Programs, will deliver the opening address at lunch on June 24. 
> The following day's luncheon speaker will be the Society's Thomas
> Jefferson Award winner, an internationally known expert in
> technology transfer.
>      Mike Stevenson, Associate Director for Energy and
> Environment, Los Alamos National Lab, will provide the address
> for the awards dinner on the evening of June 24th.
>      The theme for this year's conference is "Internationalizing
> Technology Transfer".  The meeting will have three main tracks: 
> Contemporary Technology Transfer, Proven Technology Transfer, and
> Emerging Technology Transfer.  Each track will accommodate up to
> six sessions and each session will have three presentations. 
> Nations participating are Belgium, Canada, China, Finland, Italy,
> Mexico, Switzerland, Great Britain, and the United States.
>      Technology transfer is the increasingly important science of
> effectively joining private-sector needs with the technology
> developed at government or university laboratories.  Effective
> technology transfer is essential to ensure that government
> research paid for by the taxpayer ultimately results in enhanced
> economic development and industrial competitiveness.  A
> technologically capable industrial base will improve product
> quality and lifestyles of consumers.
>      The Technology Transfer Society, headquartered in
> Indianapolis, Indiana, was formed in 1975 by representatives from
> government, industry, and academia who saw the need for an
> organization to be catalyst in moving technology to its ultimate
> application.
>      For more information on attending the conference, call the
> Technology Transfer Society's main office at (317) 262-5022 or
> the Atlanta host organization, Georgia Tech's Economic
> Development Laboratory, at (404) 894-3830.
