National Research Development Corporation (NRDC)

NRDC was a non-departmental government body. It was established by the British Government for transferring technology from public sector to private sector. This body was established in the year 1948 by Attlee’s Labour government to meet the perceived need at the time in order to exploit several products that Defence Research Establishment had developed during World War II. It was set up by Board of Trade in accordance with the Development of Inventions Act 1948. Lord Giffard was its first managing director. In the year 1981, NRDC was combined with National Enterprise Board (NEB) to form British Technology Group (BTG).
