National and Regional Technology Transfer Teams

Technology transfer is an interactive process that involves the development of technical information through workshops, forums, benchmarking symposiums, OSMRE’s applied science funding program, and by partnering with other technical programs. The information gathered by the processes is transferred among our Federal, State, Tribal, industry, and academic partners through training, publications, exhibits, conferences, and websites. Strategies to apply new technologies are developed during technical consultation and assistance services provided by OSMRE. OSMRE continues to explore and promote innovative methods to promulgate new technologies that enhance the protection of the environment during mining and reclamation and improve efficiencies in the mining process.

National Technology Transfer Team (NTTT)

OSMRE established a National Technology Transfer Team (NTTT) in April of 2003 to provide a forum to guide, coordinate, and communicate OSMRE’s national and regional technology transfer activities. The NTTT is composed of members from OSMRE and from States that administer coal mining activities. OSMRE is represented by members from Headquarters, the National Technical Training Program (NTTP), Technical Innovation and Professional Services (TIPS), and three OSMRE Regions (Appalachian, Mid-Continent, and Western).
