Advanced Technology Program: cost-shared awards to industry for the development of high risk, potentially high-payoff enabling technologies that otherwise would not be pursued because of technical risks and other obstacles that discourage private sector investment. (Department of Commerce FY96 $491M)
Cooperative Research and Development Agreements (CRADAs): Expanded use of cooperative research that combines federal laboratories and private research in ways that ensure rapid transfer of federal technology and know-how to problems of direct industrial interest.
