NTTC Building

When evaluating a technology as to its commercialization potential, a review of its technical efficacy is vitally important as a first step. Once a technology has demonstrated its technical competence it is of equal importance to identify the market opportunity. Having the ability to identify the market structures, competing products, drivers and restraints, and forecasts are all of fundamental importance. Market Assessments identify potential partners, and may involve efforts to engage potential partners and negotiate agreements for the utilization of federally funded research. The NTTC has analyzed thousands of markets for federal, university, and industry technologies that it has assessed.
