CHICAGO TECHNOLOGY AND URBAN NEEDS PROGRAM
The study examines how to overcome social and technological barriers in the process of technology transfer to the public sector. The program described is experimental in nature, realizing that the mechanisms for improving technology transfer are not yet well defined. The program began operations in December 1973. It was to be a five-year effort to develop a cooperative public-private organization called the Chicago Technology Council. The activities of this organization were to identify and develop processes and institutional linkages to transfer technology to the public sector. Public and private sector officials participated in a set of councils organized around functional areas of education, environment, health, housing, management support, manpower, protection of persons and property, recreation and leisure time, and transportation. The report is a description of the first year activities of the Program in terms of the nature of the program, the barriers to technology transfer encountered and the successes and failures of actions taken to overcome these barriers.
