Technology Transfer

Technology transfer is the process by which existing knowledge, facilities or capabilities developed under federal funding are utilized to fulfill public and private needs. At AFSRC we take great pride in our wide-ranging contacts with private industry, producers, local citizenry, academic institutions, government cooperators, national organizations and the international science community to enhance the lives of people living on small farms and in rural communities. If you or your organization is interested in hearing more about any aspect of research at AFSRC contact David P. Belesky, 304-256-2858.
