Using the USDA as an example, the talk will explore the role of technology transfer in building an internal innovation culture and serving as a connector to the external innovation ecosystem. The talk will provide examples of initiatives and programs that foster an innovation culture. It will also provide some thoughts on federal labs’ ability to serve as an ecosystem builder.
