Over the past ten years, SPRINT, the Commission's former programme for innovation and technology transfer, gave support to help establish an effective transnational technology transfer infrastructure in Europe. The experience gathered during this period has now been collected and published in: - An introductory brochure on "Good practice in technology transfer", which explains how to run transnational networks of innovation support organizations; - A two-volume manual on "Good practice in managing transnational technology transfer networks", which discusses the key aspects of networking, and illustrates them through more than 25 case histories; - A CD-ROM-based dissemination tool, which allows the user to explore interactively the concept of transnational technology networking. The SPRINT programme has now been absorbed into the Third Activity for the dissemination and optimization of RTD results (DG XIII/D) of the Fourth Framework Programme (1994-1998).
