Technology Transfer Research Paper

For this paper, you will research, analyze, and discuss the processes involved in helping

technologies emerge from the R&D environment so that they can be incorporated into products

and services which meet the needs of the cybersecurity industry. Your research should include:

technology transfer processes and initiatives and funding sources, i.e. venture capital,

government grants, etc. You should also address the technology development lifecycle and the

role of funding availability at each of the lifecycle stages (See NIST GCR 02-841).

Begin your research by reading the following documents and resources about technology transfer

processes and initiatives. Continue your research by investigating the availability (or lack) of

federal funding for innovations in the cybersecurity area.

o What is a technology?

o Technology R&D Lifecycle: Between invention and innovation: An analysis of

funding for early-stage technology development (NIST GCR 02-841).


o What is technology transfer?

o Technology Transfer @ DHS



o DHS Transition to Practice (TTP) FY 2016 pp. 1-23


o Technology Transfer @ NSA



o Technology Transfer @ Federal Government:


o Cyber Maryland Report


Next, research the role that private funding (venture capital) plays in providing money and

resources to innovators who are developing cybersecurity technologies and products. How does

the availability of venture capital impact the development of technology? How do venture

capitalists influence the emergence or death of technology developments? Provide specific

examples from your research.
