Primary Findings

Method: Important to identify a problem amendable to technology-based solutions (Stage 1.2), propose a solution (Stage 1.3), and determine the scope of the project (1.4). Lacking in this case is input from all relevant stakeholder groups (Stage 1.1), or consideration of a future path to market (Stage 1.5).
Description of technology-based research, development and testing conducted through Federal grant funding.
