The KT4TT Knowledge Base: Steps and
Supporting Evidence to Improve Your Process!

September 29, 2010, 2:00 PM (Central) / 3:00 PM (Eastern)

About the Webcast

The Center on Knowledge Translation for Technology Transfer (KT4TT) has introduced a comprehensive knowledge base geared towards individuals who research and develop technology-base devices and services. The knowledge base consists of a new product development model - the Need to Knowledge (NtK) Model, and a searchable database of substantiating findings extracted from scholarly literature. The knowledge base is intended for use by federal grantees, small businesses, and others who have an interest in moving new technology-based devices or services from research and development laboratories out to the marketplace. More about the NtK Model is described in FOCUS Technical Brief #28.

This one-hour webcast will review the Center’s online knowledge base including the NtK model homepage, search page, and results pages. The presentation begins with an overview of the model, and ways to view steps, tips, and supporting evidence. The audience will then be introduced to the knowledge base’s search page, and given tips for effective searches. Finally, a question and answer session will complete the webcast.
