The U.S. Commerce Department’s National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) are co-leading the Lab-to-Market Cross Agency Priority goal, part of the recently released President’s Management Agenda(link is external). To accelerate these efforts, NIST has launched an initiative to improve federal technology transfer.
The education industry – particularly large research universities — are likely stakeholders in this discussion – which NIST will expand outside the policy-making precincts of Washington DC. Standards Michigan collaborates with the American National Standards Institute on issues of this nature.
