About InVision Who Should Attend Register

Technology transfer (T2) is the process of by which existing knowledge, facilities, or capabilities developed under federal R&D funding are utilized to fulfill public and private needs. A large majority of the products that we depend on today have been made available for our purchase and utilization by way of tech transfer processes.

A national effort to increase participation of minority business enterprises and minority-serving institutions in T2 and expand opportunities to develop solutions and products of the future, the mission of the InVision Tour is to inform U.S. minorities about the benefits of T2. Through federal government collaboration, minority entrepreneurs, scientists, engineers, pioneers, thinkers, inventors, and visionaries with their next big idea can learn about technology transfer and how public R&D access can lead to building wealth for their company, community, and the country.
