Technology Transfer - Past, Present and Future

  • George J. Doddy

Abstract

The present and the future were never more a product of the past than in Science, where one thing generally leads to another. Science has continuously produced discoveries and events that have benefited society. In reviewing some of the benefits which we so readily enjoy today, I could not help but wonder when they occurred and to what they owed their inceptions. I have subsequently found that the course of many of these benefits had their beginnings during the period of time spanning the turn of the century and as such are early examples of technology transfer from pure research. This segment of science history is stated lucidly by Close, Martin and Sutton in “The Particle Explosion.”
