Released this month, the Technology Transfer Desk Reference is a publication of the Federal Laboratory Consortium for Technology Transfer (FLC). It is a 200-page guide that defines technology transfer, explains why it is important, and discusses how to implement it effectively. Although it is targeted at federal laboratories, other organizations can benefit from the material as well. For instance, certain sections describe "procedures that can be used to identify and transfer technologies from the government sector to the private sector." With technology advancing at the current rate, it is increasingly important to have proper transfer practices to avoid reinventing technologies that already exist.
