Technology Transfer


UCF technology transfer is the development and dissemination of products and technical information to states, communities, practitioners, and other users. Working in partnership with many organizations, it is the objective of the centers to encourage the wise use of innovative, cutting-edge technology and science-based resources that results in improved management and sustainability of urban ecosystems.

Technology transfer ensures that urban and community forests are better understood and that important principles are shared with and used by practitioners, community leaders, local residents, and others.
