The CREATES Team recently shared data with the Department of Defense’s “Value Proposition” resulting from the research of Cold Weather Pavement Testing, in partnership with the ERDC Cold Regions Research and Engineering Laboratory. A presentation of the Objectives, Benefits and Impact of this collaboration can be found in the DoD report here.
Rapid advances in science and technology and renewed interest in technology transfer at the Federal level necessitate the continued study of the DoD’s technology transfer programs. In parallel with such initiatives, the Laboratories and Personnel Office prepared a new study based on the 2010 Value Proposition report. This report identifies recent case studies wherein technology transfer mechanisms have brought sustained success to programs developed by DoD’s R&D enterprise. Laboratories across the Services provided success stories; the DoD then investigated how the product or collaboration added a capability, saved time or lives, enhanced maintainability, or provided other benefits or impacts.
