This paper investigates wheter, in what direction, and to what extent one mode of technology transfer is influenced by the strength of intellectual property protection that host nations provide. Using data spanning the period 1977 - 1999, we find little support for the claim that strengthening intellectual property rights will have any sizable effect on the magnitude of overseas R&D investment by (US) multinationals. Any semblance of a positive relationship between these two variables vanishes the moment we introduce country fixed effects and time fixed effects into the regressions. One implication of our resutls is, that ceteris paribus, stronger intellectual property rights in the developing countries pursuant to the TRIPs agreement may not have any significant influence on technology transfer into thes countries via overseas R&D.
This paper presents an empirical analysis of the influence of the strength of intellectual property rights (IPRs) on technology transfer to developing nations. The core contribution is to use regression analysis to examine the relationship between various measures of technology transfer and a set of indexes that quantify the strength of IPRs based on laws on the books, while controlling for other factors. For this purpose, the authors have assembled a data set covering a broad international panel of countries for an expanded time frame (1990-2005) in comparison with previous studies on IPRs by the Trade and Agriculture Directorate. Regression analysis is also used to assess the relationship between measures of local innovation and the IPR indexes. The study employs case study analysis of select countries - namely the BRIC countries (Brazil, Russia, India, and China) - to complement the statistical analysis ...
For the past number of years, academic entrepreneurship has become one of the most widely studied topics in the entrepreneurship literature. Yet, despite all the research that has been conducted to date, there has not been a systematic attempt to analyze critically the factors which lie behind successful business spin-offs from university research. In this book, a group of academic thought-leaders in the field of technology transfer examine a number of areas critical to the promotion of start-ups on campus. Through a series of case studies, they examine current policies, structures, program initiatives and practices of fourteen international universities to develop a theory of successful academic entrepreneurship, with the aim of helping other universities to enhance the quality of their university transfer programs. This book is a valuable resource for university research administrators, technology transfer office professionals, academic entrepreneurs, incubator management officials, R&D ...

In the past decade, Russia has become Irans main source of advanced conventional arms, an alleged supplier of know-how and technology for its ballistic missile and chemical and biological warfare programs, and its sole source of civilian nuclear technology. Despite sustained U.S. efforts to halt these transfers, they continue, raising unsettling questions about Moscows intentions, the depth of its commitment to arms control, and the future of U.S.-Russian relations. How the United States deals with this challenge could have far-reaching implications for the stability of the Middle East and the fate of the international non-proliferation regime.. Iran has been seeking to enhance its military capabilities for more than a decade now, in an attempt to increase self-reliance, strengthen deterrence, and achieve the status and influence that it believes is its due. Self-reliance in all areas of national life-but particularly in the military sphere-is a fundamental tenet of Irans 1979 Islamic ...

Abstract: What is the relationship between foreign manufacturing multinational corporations (MNCs) and the expansion of indigenous technological and managerial technological capabilities among Chinese firms? China has been remarkably successful in designing industrial policies, joint venture requirements, and technology transfer pressures to use FDI to create indigenous national champions in a handful of prominent sectors: high speed rail transport, information technology, auto assembly, and an emerging civil aviation sector. But what is striking in the aggregate data is how relatively thin the layer of horizontal and vertical spillovers from foreign manufacturing multinationals to indigenous Chinese firms has proven to be. Despite the large size of manufacturing FDI inflows, the impact of multinational corporate investment in China has been largely confined to building plants that incorporate capital, technology, and managerial expertise controlled by the foreigner. As the skill-intensity of ...

Methylmalonic Acidemia (MMA) is a metabolic disorder affecting 1 in 25,000 to 48,000 individuals globally. MMA is characterized by increased acidity in the blood and tissues due to toxic accumulation of protein and fat by-products resulting in seizures, strokes, and chronic kidney failure. About 60% of MMA cases stem from mutations in the methylmalonyl CoA mutase (MUT) gene encoding a key enzyme required to break down amino acids and lipids. Previous efforts to develop mice with null mutations in MUT have been unsuccessful, as such mutations result in neonatal death ...

Neglected disease research is both necessary and expensive. Topping agendas of many public health advocates this year is finding ways to cut costs and create incentives for public and private sector research facilities to focus on finding cures even when there is no market to support them. A related issue is how to ensure that existing drugs get to where they are needed, and whether IP matters - such as counterfeit or customs enforcement policies - help or harm that goal.. Other leading policy issues include anti-competitive behaviour that might delay generic drug entry in the market, the length of data protection, ongoing concerns about pandemic influenza preparedness, counterfeit medicines, and technology transfer.. World Health Organization: Innovation, Flu, Counterfeit. At the World Health Organization, disagreements at the 18-23 January Executive Board meeting have pushed decision-making on key IP-related programming to the May World Health Assembly, which now has several additional ...

Biosensor technology is a powerful alternative to conventional techniques, harnessing the specificity and sensitivity of biological systems in small, low cost devices. Despite the promising biosensors developed in research laboratories, there are not many reports of applications in agricultural monitoring. The authors review biosensor technology and discuss the different bio-receptor systems and methods of transduction. The difference between a biosensor and a truly integrated biosensor system are defined and the main reasons for the slow technology transfer of biosensors to the marketplace are reported. Biosensor research and development has been directed mainly towards health care, environmental applications and the food industry. The most commercially important application is the hand-held glucose meter used by diaberics. The agricultural/veterinary testing market has seen a number of diagnostic tests but no true biosensor systems have made an impact. The need for fast, on-line and accurate ...
Firefighting equipment widely used throughout the United States is based on a NASA development that coupled Agency design expertise with lightweight materials developed for the U.S. Space Program. A project that linked NASA and the National Bureau of Standards resulted in a lightweight breathing system including face mask, frame, harness, and air bottle, using an aluminum composite material developed by NASA for use on rocket casings. Aerospace technology has been beneficially transferred to civil-use applications for years, but perhaps the broadest fire-related technology transfer is the breathing apparatus worn by firefighters for protection from smoke inhalation injury. Additionally, radio communications are essential during a fire to coordinate hose lines, rescue victims, and otherwise increase efficiency and safety. NASAs inductorless electronic circuit technology contributed to the development of a lower-cost, more rugged, short-range two-way radio now used by firefighters. NASA also ...

The purposes of the WREAFS Program are to identify new technologies and techniques for reducing wastes from process operations and other activities at Federal sites, and to enhance the implementation of pollution prevention/waste minimization through technology transfer. New techniques and technologies for reducing waste generation are identified through waste minimization opportunity assessments and may be further evaluated through joint research, development, and demonstration projects. A cooling tower is an enclosed device designed for the evaporative cooling of water by direct contact with air. Cooling towers are used in conjunction with air conditioning and industrial process equipment, acting as the heat sink for these systems by providing a continuous source of cool water for process operations. Open-system recirculating cooling towers are typically chosen for operation with air conditioning and refrigeration equipment because they are relatively inexpensive and minimize heat rejection costs
When EDF Ventures launched in Ann Arbor in 1987 to invest in university-based technologies, the University of Michigan had one person working part time on technology transfer.. And at the time, the only other local venture capitalist in Southeast Michigan was Ian Bund.. We were considered an oddity, said EDF co-founder Mary Campbell. Youre going to fund a professor? Why would you do that? . Today, the tech transfer office at UM employs 28 and has a variety of entrepreneurial support services, including incubator space at the schools north campus for some of its licensed startups.. Growth of UMs tech transfer is mirrored by growth of Michigans venture capital industry. Funds that Campbell and Bund were associated with, less than $10 million, are quaint by todays standards.. Being an early adopter has been good to EDF. It has made a lot of money for its limited partners over the years through the sale or public offerings of such university-licensed portfolio companies as IntraLase, ...

Stephen McKeever, vice president for research and technology transfer at Oklahoma State University, writes that the National Science Foundations Social, Behavioral and Economics directorate should be retained.. A recent review of the National Science Foundation asks that science funding be limited to truly transformative sciences with practical uses … and clear benefits to mankind and the world. The review calls for the elimination of the NSFs Social, Behavioral and Economics (SBE) Directorate, stating that the social sciences should not be the focus of our premier basic scientific research agency. While much of the criticism leveled at NSF may be justified, to eliminate the SBE Directorate in toto is to throw out the baby with the bath water. Making science transformative and with practical uses to benefit mankind is exactly what the SBE sciences do. For many of the important problems facing us today the SBE sciences are the most important of all the sciences. Traditional science ...

3D printing is now mainstream; the Internet is abuzz with more or less useful templates for 3D printers, which are now available on almost all eCommerce platforms. So far, so boring.. But manufacturing a medical implant to replace a defective hip joint, for example, is probably something that very few hobby 3D printers would dare to do. And quite rightly so, as our photo report from the Swiss m4m Center in Bettlach, Solothurn, shows (starting on p. 20). There, patient-specific implants will be created layer by layer from a bed of metal powder. This is a multi-stage, extremely complex process that requires an enormous amount of materials and process engineering expertise.. The Swiss m4m Center is the first Advanced Manufacturing Technology Transfer Center, a Swiss-wide network that is intended to give local industry a technological edge over international competition in the field of advanced manufacturing technologies.. Incidentally, this idea originated at Empa as a kind of extension of ...

Different research and extension networks will help execute the objectives. Research and technology transfer is facilitated by the coordinated structure of the group. For example, entomologists in NCERA-224 from the states with active emerald ash borer infestations used the NCERA-224 structure to coordinate research objectives and protocols in various states to evaluate insecticides for control of emerald ash borer. They were then well positioned to develop consensus recommendations for managing emerald ash borer, which were subsequently published in the highly cited multi-state NCR-IPM bulletin, Insecticide Options for Protecting Ash Trees from Emerald Ash Borer. More generally, members of NCERA-224 provide information, as appropriate, to clientele and stakeholders through face-to-face meetings, newsletters, CEU trainings, and professional society meetings such as annual meetings of the Entomological Society of America and American Phytopathological Society. Many of the same pests occur in ...
This three-day symposium was organized by the US EPA, the USAF AL/EQ, Tyndall AFB FL, and the US AFCEE Technology Transfer Division, Brooks AFB TX. Natural attenuation, the biodegradation or chemical destruction or stabilization of contaminants, can reduce contaminants to levels protective of human health and ecosystems. The symposium was intended to increase understanding of the natural attenuation process and to review methods for screening sites and making decisions to determine the feasibility of natural attenuation at chlorinated solvent-contaminated sites.

FAOs Panorama of Rural Poverty reveals that rural workers in Latin America earn less than half of what urban workers earn. The average income of the former, in 2015, was 363 dollars a year, compared to 804 dollars for those working in towns and cities.. The result is that many flee the hardship of rural life. In Honduras, 76 percent of those who leave their places of origin leave behind rural municipalities. And the proportion stands at 70 percent in El Salvador and 61 percent in Guatemala.. Lina Pohl, El Salvadors environment and natural resources minister, warned that if ways are not found to increase agricultural yields, the future will bring higher prices, more hunger and social upheaval.. In that sense, she said that each country must find its own path, because technology transfer has not been successful, and there is no agenda for joint, integrated work, despite the resources that the international community allocates to the issue of climate change.. El Salvador, he said, has been hit ...

WHO: Questions and Answers related to Vaccines for the new Influenza A (H1N1) From World Health Organization- May 2, 2009 Is an effective vaccine already available against the new Influenza A(H1N1) virus? No, but work is already underway to develop such a vaccine. Influenza vaccines generally contain a dead or weakened form of a circulating virus. The vaccine prepares the bodys immune system to defend against a true infection. For the vaccine to protect as well as possible, the virus in it should match the circulating wild-type virus relatively closely. Since this H1N1 virus is new, there is no vaccine currently available made with this particular virus. Making a completely new influenza vaccine can take five to six months. What implications does the declaration of a pandemic have on influenza vaccine production? Declaration by WHO of phase 6 of pandemic alert does not by itself automatically translate into a request for vaccine manufacturers to immediately stop production of seasonal ...
Cutting edge research leads to commercialisation of ultrafiltration membrane technology. The launch of the South Africas first locally produced ultrafiltration membrane technology will take place on the 29th October 2009 in Somerset West. Most membranes used in South Africa have been imported at great cost. With this in mind, a joint research project, funded by the Water Research Commission (WRC), was initiated in 1996 and succeeded to develop suitable and cost-effective, locally produced, ultrafiltration membranes and filtration systems for use in water treatment and industrial water management.
