[top] History

The Mississippi Technology Transfer Center at the John C. Stennis Space Center was officially dedicated in 1987. This project represented an unprecedented commitment by the state of Mississippi to fund the construction of such a facility and donate the building to NASA upon completion, with the intent that it would allow for Mississippi citizens to benefit more directly from technological innovations developed by NASA and by resident agencies. The success of this project has made it a showpiece for supporters of technology transfer programs, as it has provided technical assistance and other support to hundreds of private companies, medical institutions, and other organizations. The center is home, among others, to elements of NASA, the Department of the Interior, the U.S. Navy, the Environmental Protection Agency, the Department of Commerce, Mississippi State University, and the State of Louisiana.
