Technology transfer within the construction industry is difficult due to (1) organization of the industry, (2) lack of construction industry participation in research, (3) societal impediments. These barriers are discussed in relation to transferring innovation to practice. Differing activities that can mitigate the barriers are discussed and recommendations are offered to enhance the transfer of technology from research results to application in the construction industry.
