Technology Transfer Partnership Opportunities

The USGS encourages technology transfer and use of its research developments and technologies by the private sector. As part of technology transfer, the USGS is interested in forming collaborative partnerships, such as Cooperative Research and Development Agreements (CRADAs), with interested participants. The following are USGS research projects offering an opportunity for partnerships between the private sector and USGS:

USGS is Seeking CRADA Partners to Improve Acoustic Telemetry Receivers.

USGS is seeking potential collaborators with expertise in advancing current state-of-the art acoustic telemetry receivers. The projectís focus will be improvement of commercially available receivers that can be used to achieve a global approach to monitoring fish behavior. The research objective is to facilitate real-time reporting of information to allow in-season management of water conveyance operations and fish protection strategies. Interested parties must be willing to execute a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) with USGS. For more information, contact: V. Michelle Chenault, Ph.D., USGS Technology Transfer Officer, by email:
