NASA Technologies: Changing the Way the World Lives Webinar Ad

NASA's technology transfer efforts began with the National Aeronautics and Space Act of 1958 and has evolved as successive Presidents and Congresses enacted executive orders and laws to promote technology transfer and encourage the pooling of resources to develop commercial technologies. We ensure that innovations developed for exploration and discovery are broadly available to the public, maximizing the benefits to our Nation.

Our efforts:

• Increase awareness of NASA programs that can be beneficial to the university and the surrounding region;

• Showcase how to use NASA-patented technologies and lay the groundwork for future collaborations;

• Highlight NASA’s partnerships opportunities and resources, allowing quick access to understanding how to navigate and uncover opportunities;

• Inspire the next generation of explorers.
