Through partnerships and spinoffs, NASA engineers advances in medicine, safety, and deep space observation.
Private funding for technology maturation will help enable better commercialization of governmental scientific research. However compelling the technology, a gap often exists between government-funded research and its transfer to the marketplace. As a research project nears completion, federal dollars often dry up before an invention has progressed enough to spin out as a commercial product. Enter technology maturation funds, the means by which many promising technologies make needed advances toward becoming commercial products.

Outsourcing of various aspects of an organization's business functions has been happening for decades. In recent years, much of this work has been in the information technology (IT) area, although product development work and actual R&D for manufacturers has been working its way up the "food chain" as well, as suppliers and focused companies provide lower cost, faster response solutions to the sponsoring organizations' product needs.
