coondoggie writes "The federal government funded some $135 billion in research and development (R&D) for all manner of science and technology and is now looking for a way to get a faster return on such investments.
Or at least that was the focus of a congressional Subcommittee on Technology and Innovation hearing this week looking for ways to improve collaboration between commercial concerns and nonprofit organizations, including universities, in addition to promoting the utilization of inventions arising from federally supported research and development."
