In the first news story, "Global Technology Transfer Infrastructure Is Maturing," the success of the US system of funded technology transfer hasn't been lost on the rest of the world's research community. From Stockholm to Shanghai, researchers, scholars, and policymakers are crafting legislation allowing for equitable distribution of intellectual-property rights arising from funded research. In addition, they're helping to build long-term national and multinational frameworks in which the public, nonprofit, and private sectors can each reap public investment's benefits.
