WRRC Technology Transfer

WRRC and the Agricultural Research Service actively seek partners for technology transfer. This can take multiple forms:

  • Joint Research.  A private company, a non-profit organization, or any non-federal government agency may partner with USDA to conduct joint research and any resulting patent may be licensed exclusively to the research partner.

  • Grants.  Companies or individuals with research capacity may be eligible for a Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grant. Recipients of such grants may be eligible for cooperative research with USDA scientists.

Current WRRC collaborations are listed here: Collaborations
