// // in Government

Yesterday the House Science Committee approved H.R. 2981, the TRANSFER Act. This legislation would ensure that a federal commitment exists for transforming federally funded research and development into commercial products and high growth start-up companies. The TRANSFER Act incentivizes research institutions to collaborate with university research parks and other technology-based economic development entities to create a return on federal investment.
