Abstract:

In 2018, NIST launched the Return on Investment (ROI) Initiative, a broad stakeholder engagement process to collect information on needed improvements in federal technology transfer. The ROI Initiative supports the President’s Management Agenda by informing the Lab-to-Market Cross-Agency Priority goal and the National Science and Technology Council’s Lab-to-Market subcommittee. The NIST ROI initiative culminated in the publication of a final green paper, NIST Special Publication 1234 “Return on Investment Initiative to Advance the President’s Management Agenda” in April 2019. Here, the ROI Initiative process, findings, and next steps are reviewed.
