Technology transfer is the process of transferring skills, knowledge, and technologies to a wide range of users.
The Kentucky Transportation Center (KTC) has a dedicated Technology Transfer Program which is one of 58 Local Technical Assistance Program (LTAP) centers nationwide. LTAP was established by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) in 1982. The operational funds come from FHWA with matching funds from the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet.
In addition, KTC areas of research conduct additional technology transfer activities.
