Transferring Technology Can Leverage Global Investments
Today's global economies are based on the command of knowledge and information. Knowledge in this sense is created by basic and applied research. Incorporating emerging and advanced technologies that are positioned for technology transfer can increase benefits to society and defense of the nation—outcomes that are within the bounds of public interest. Enhancing economic prosperity through job creation, providing access to breakthrough capabilities to protect a nation and creating long-term investment in R&D are all critical to success.
