(October 27, 2010)

APEX, N.C. – Laura A. Schoppe, president of Fuentek, LLC, a local technology consulting firm that provides intellectual property and technology management, has announced the release of a new white paper report called How’d We Do?: Establishing Useful Technology Transfer Metrics (link opens new browser window)written by Schoppe, Karen Hiser and Dr. Norman Pollack. The paper gathers together information on the technology transfer practices of government agencies, universities and corporations so the sectors can learn from each other. It provides research-based recommendations for measuring performance and success of technology transfer programs.

Fuentek’s paper is based on research conducted at the request of NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center’s technology transfer office during the fall of 2009 to identify the best methods and practices in metrics collection. 

"In this paper, Fuentek provides a comprehensive look at each sector’s use of technology transfer metrics", said Schoppe. "No other source brings together cross-sector information, yet there is much that universities, government agencies, and corporate institutions can learn from each other."
