The Edison Materials Technology Center (EMTEC), a not-for-profit consortium of industry, academic, and federal partners, has a mission to identify, develop, and transfer Materials & Processes (M&P) technologies from all sources to the private sector, with the goal of increasing the global competitiveness and market share of its industry members.
This paper addresses specific examples of successful technology transfer. The examples include short-term transfer which has saved jobs and contracts and solved immediate M&P problems. In the longer term, specific examples of generic technology development and transfer are described. Finally, a summary of important lessons learned in technology transfer is given.
