The Specific Projects Action Line (SPAL) is an exploratory action within Sprint which seeks to improve technology diffusion and technology transfer processes in the Community. Forty large industrial-scale technology transfer projects were supported during a definition phase designed to produce project plans for a later implementation phase. Twenty-one projects have gone through to implementation. All aim to transfer specific technologies across sectoral and national boundaries, to catalyse the further spread of the technology via a demonstrator effect, and to enhance general understanding of good technology transfer processes. At the level of the action line, the aim is to evolve an efficient and effective technology diffusion mechanism with lessons for the management of future initiatives.
