There are a variety of ways to interact with us and our science. We invite you to explore the following information about partnering with our science programs.
The technology transfer program at the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) is designed to leverage the research capabilities of USGS scientists with the commercial development potential of the private sector. It encourages the adoption, use, and commercialization of USGS research products through partnerships and is oriented toward finding potential users of USGS technology.
U. S. Geological Survey Domestic Memorandums of Understanding (MOU) with other Federal Agencies or Entities. This site contains information on domestic MOUs that have been signed by the Director of the USGS.
We provide reliable scientific information about the earth and its resources from an international perspective. This Office supports U.S. foreign policy and national security, provides a basis for science diplomacy, improves the scientific basis for managing ecosystems and natural resources, and promotes the competitiveness of our private sector.
