Technology Transfer

The transfer of information, knowledge and technologies to benefit society is a cornerstone of the RAL mission.  Tech transfer is accomplished in a number of ways, given the nature of the technology, the sponsoring agency, and the intended use/user. Quite often it is accomplished through direct transfer of some capability to the sponsoring entity or through an education and training activity for a sponsor.  The publication of research results in peer-reviewed literature and presentations at national and international meetings are another important means by which work is communicated to the broader scientific community and the public. Products developed at RAL may also be transferred to a commercial entity through licenses issued by UCAR.
