Abstract:

This study investigates the types of factors which can lead to government acquisition, or the “spin‐in” of bio‐defense technologies from small bio‐technology firms. Empirical findings suggest that for small biotechnology R&D firms desiring to increase “spin‐in” technology transfer, there appears to be two distinct and important influence groups—the scientific community within federal agencies, institutes, and centers, and the more managerial, policy‐oriented decisions makers. We found that personal communication and networking appear to be the primary factor that leads to a successful technology transfer, however, the form and substance of personal communication and networking will differ between the two influence groups.
