Greetings!    (01)

You and your colleagues are invited to Collaborative Expedition Workshop 
#71, "Technology Program Evaluation: Methodologies from the Advanced 
Technology Program, NIST".   This no fee, one-day public workshop provides 
an opportunity for participants and communities of practice to better 
understand how to evaluate the social and economic benefits from public 
and private investments in emerging technology.  The compelling role of 
sound economic transaction analysis (including credible commitments, risk 
mitigation, and foresight in contracting) along with best practices for 
technology evaluation will be shared, based on the former Advanced 
Technology Program, a globally-recognized program at the National 
Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST).  The workshop will also 
open up dialogue to facilitate "bootstrapping" among multiple communities 
learning how to advance broad public service goals associated with 
national innovation by leveraging engagement opportunities associated with 
Web 2.0.     (02)

WHERE: National Science Foundation, Ballston, VA, 4201 Wilson Blvd., Rm.
