  • Peter G. Katona
Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSPS, volume 3)


Technology transfer between NATO and Cooperating Partner (CP) countries cannot take place until the two sides understand each other’s needs and concerns. This paper thus first describes biomedical engineering in the U.S., concentrating on technology transfer issues within that country. The paper then briefly describes some issues that must be considered when contemplating technology transfer between the U.S. and CP countries.
