New University R&D Database

The National Technology Transfer Center (NTTC), Wheeling, WV, is creating what officials believe is a one-of-a-kind, formal database that tracks and monitors federal research and development (R&D) activity at U.S. universities.

NTTC’s Business and Technology Intelligence Group (BTIG) has received permission to receive technology data from 106 universities. The information will be continually placed into the database, providing ready access to R&D data, such as patent information and data on technologies that are ready to be commercialized.

In addition to the database of federal R&D activities at universities, NTTC tracks and monitors federal R&D activities in more than 700 laboratories.
