Evaluating the Advanced Technology Program: a preliminary assessment of economic impacts
by Albert N. Link
International Journal of Technology Management (IJTM), Vol. 8, No. 6/7/8, 1993

Abstract: The Advanced Technology Program (ATP) was established in the USA in 1988 to assist US businesses in creating and applying the generic technology and research results necessary to commercialize significant new scientific discoveries and technologies rapidly, and to refine manufacturing technologies. To accomplish these goals, the ATP solicits and evaluates projects for co-funding. This paper describes the ATP and offers an evaluation process for assessing its short-term and long-term economic impacts. In addition, the feasibility of this evaluation plan is demonstrated using information from the ATP's first two solicitations. This plan has been adopted by the ATP and is currently being implemented on a larger scale.
