4. Research and Advocacy contd 4.2 Goal: Raise the profile of the FPTT Advisory Council with a view to becoming the voice for technology transfer in the federal government FPTT Advisory Council agreed to take on an enhanced role in policy making related to knowledge translation and technology transfer and commercialization and was re-named the FPTT ADM Committee FPTT Executive Office (i.e., 3 NRC employees) has been re- named: FPTT Secretariat and it will carry out the direction of, and report to, the FPTT ADM Committee FPTT Steering Committee (i.e., one senior tech transfer representative from each member department) to be re-named: FPTT Working Group.
Our activities will increasingly address the different needs of departments in non-economic ( as per the Belinko model) based departments (e.g., what are the best practices in managing IP in non-economic based departments?) Support to ADM Committee These activities will assume a greater importance than previously (when they were called research and advocacy) The Secretariat will coordinate its own activities and those of the Working Group in examining critical issues as requested by the FPTT ADM Committee
For 2008-09, the ADM Committee will likely wish to focus on specific IP and TT issues of the DGSI and the Commercialization Pilot The Secretariat will need to provide support for reporting to the ADM Committee on S&T to ensure this link is strengthened The Secretariat will also need to support more regular meetings of and follow-up from the FPTT ADM Committee
