Kansas Technology Transfer Model
Technology transfer is a primary contribution that transcends all programs
of KUERC. The goal of a contract awarded to KUERC by the U.S. Department
of Energy in August 1992 was to develop a Kansas Technology Transfer Model
The primary issue with the KTTM is to provide impetus for the petroleum
industry to increase efficiency and productivity of domestic petroleum production.
USDOE desires to extend the model nationally. Specific program goals accomplished
by the KTTM include:
- Increase collaboration between participants on and off campus to develop
interdisciplinary team. Extend campus activities to an integrated off
campus structure by developing partnerships with operating companies,
consultants, service companies, and professional societies.
- Elevate the awareness of technologies that have demonstrated or indicated
potential for improving oil and gas recovery.
- Facilitate and accelerate the technology transfer process by maintaining
focus and awareness on needs and issues.
- Establish an energy research and technology transfer infrastructure
to support joint studies between collaborating scientists and engineers
on campus and counterparts in industry and professional societies. A goal
is to eventually provide a centralized resource center and meeting facilities.
One outgrowth of this program was the formation of the Petroleum Technology
Transfer Council (PTTC) including the local PTTC
program operated through the ERC.
