Welcome to the Special Technology Development Program (STDP)
Accelerating Research Findings Into Applications
Welcome to the Special Technology Development Program (STDP) Website. Our aim is quite simple: To put you in touch with the people who can help you obtain and implement the technologies developed through STDP has funded since its inception in 1990.
The STDP is a competitive granting process intended to accelerate the transition
of research findings into real-world applications. The program has a focus on
short-term technology development that addresses both Regional and National
needs. The Program is administered and funded at the national level, with goals
and objectives established to:
* Enhance deployment of Forest Health Protection (FHP) technologies
* Effectively use resources to promote forest health
* Respond to emerging forest health problems
Some project examples includes risk assessments, semiochemical evaluations, demonstrations of integrated pest management techniques, simulation and visualization models of insect and pathogen impacts, development of pest control techniques, and evaluation of the effects of management tools such as prescribed burning, spraying, and thinning.
