This document concerns science and technology in Japan--new technology pending commercialization. Text Since its founding in 1961, the Research Development Corporation of Japan JRDC has worked through the Commissioned Development Program and Development Mediation Program to promote the development of new technology of domestic origin. With respect to technology transfer, in particular, the JRDC has since 1967 mediated development with corporations through a program of collection and survey-evaluation, focusing consistently on patents held in Japan by national research institutions and universities. More recently the JRDC has put more effort into technology transfer regionally throughout the country, working closely with local technological research institutions and vigorously promoting development mediation for local companies.
