The European Association for the Transfer of Technologies, Innovation and Industrial Information (TII) has recently published the "Technology Response Network (TRN) Offers and Requests Catalogue (Volume V, no. 121-156, 1993)". This catalogue includes technology offers and requests entered in December 1992 and January 1993. The entries are indexed on the basis of the TII Technology Classification, enabling users to consult the catalogue selectively for specific areas of technology. Entries are limited to technologies with immediate or short-term industrial potential. In the case of offers, this means that the TRN only accepts technology already in industrial use or with specified industrial potential. TII's Technology Response Network, supported by the SPRINT programme, represents over 100 technology brokers located throughout Europe with correspondents in Canada, Japan and the United States. Every four to eight weeks, a catalogue of new entries goes to all TRN users and old offers are removed automatically after six months.
