Universities have become essential players in the generation of knowledge and innovation. Through the commercialization of technology, they have developed the ability to influence regional economic growth. By examining different commercialization models this book analyses technology transfer at universities as part of a national and regional system. It provides insight as to why certain models work better than others, and reaffirms that technology transfer programs must be linked to their regional and commercial environments. Using a global perspective on technology commercialization, this book divides the discussion between developed and developing counties according to the level of university commercialization capability. Critical cases as well as country reports examine the policies and culture of university involvement in economic development, relationships between university and industry, and the commercialization of technology first developed at universities. In addition, each chapter provides examples from specific universities in each country from a regional, national, and international comparative perspective. This book includes articles by leading practitioners as well as researchers and will be highly relevant to all those with an interest in innovation studies, organizational studies, regional economics, higher education, public policy and business entrepreneurship.

Universities are now in the business of managing intellectual property portfolios and commercializing discoveries from their laboratories. Much of the money universities make from this is in the form of licensing revenue and IPO-related wealth. However, managing intellectual-property portfolios is still a very new business for universities, and administrators and policymakers are still uncertain about how best to navigate the many practical and fundamental issues that arise. Written for both practitioners and academics, The Chicago Handbook of University Technology Transfer and Academic Entrepreneurshipprovides a clear outline of the broad set of new practices and institutions that have sprung up to manage and sell intellectual property, from university technology-transfer offices and cooperative-engineering research centers to vast research parks. To determine what makes technology transfer work, the question is approached from a variety of perspectives: historically, internationally, and from the perspectives of professors, entrepreneurs, administrators, and regulators. Some chapters offer guidelines and examples of how to foster and maintain successful research ventures from various perspectives. Others explore how developments in university technology transfer affect the public interest and inform the notion of open innovation and science.

Technology Transfer from University to Industry provides a cogent analysis of university technology transfer in the Chinese National Innovation System (NIS). The book outlines the NIS approach, analyses the building-up of the Chinese NIS and discusses the role orientation of university in the NIS. It also discusses three institutional innovations - the Chinese version "e;Bayh-Dole Act"e;, university technology transfer offices and university incubators - in order to show how universities transfer technology to industry in the Chinese NIS. Additionally, it makes a cross-nation comparison of university incubators in China and in France. The book underlines the importance of university in improving weak absorptive and innovative capabilities of domestic firms and provides both practical and theoretical insights to policy makers and practitioners. The book will be a very valuable reference to university students and lecturers as well as to governments and firms who are interested in university technology transfer and the Chinese NIS.

This study examines and evaluates the recent progress made in seven Asian countries (China, India, Japan, Philippines, the Republic of Korea, Singapore and Thailand) towards more effective and mutually reinforcing relations between universities and industries in the field of scientific and technological research and proposes a checklist for action to make these relationships even more effective from the broad perspective of the national economy. In particular, it highlights the mechanisms adopted by these Asian countries for technology transfer and pays particular attention to the use of the intellectual property system as an instrument for technology transfer from university to industry. While economic and historical situations are different across Asian countries and no simple solution can be found that is universally applicable throughout the region, it is the hope of the participants in this project that this document will provide some useful lessons and insights, and will thus be helpful to policy-makers who are concerned with evaluating the effectiveness of university- industry relations in their respective countries and identifying ways to improve them.

This book explores major similarities and differences in the structure, conduct, and performance of the national technology transfer systems of Germany and the United States. It maps the technology transfer landscape in each country in detail, uses case studies to examine the dynamics of technology transfer in four major technology areas, and identifies areas and opportunities for further mutual learning between the two national systems.

As we move further into the 21st century, increasing emphasis is being placed on the importance of technology transfer. Through new research and practices, scholars, practitioners and policymakers have made great strides in broadening our understanding and ability to implement technology transfer and commercialization processes. The fruit of that research is collected in this timely volume. Technology transfer is a dynamic area of study that examines traditional topics such as intellectual property management, the management of risk, market identification, the role of public and private labs, and the role of universities. This volume reflects on how government, business and academia influence technology transfer in different countries and how the infrastructure of a country enhances technology and contributes to each country s overall economy. Interpreting and adopting the processes of technology transfer and commercialization or, building innovative ecosystems is critical to seeing success in this digital age. Those leading the surge toward building innovative ecosystems for technology transfer are the fellows of the Institute for Innovation Creativity and Capital (IC2 Institute) at The University of Texas at Austin. Global in its scope of solving market economy problems, for this volume the Institute has focused its lens on accelerated knowledge-based development. Here, scholars from 13 countries come together to critique technology transfer from each of their respective nations. The results of their contributions lend innovative insight to exactly how different nations are working to maximize technology transfer and commercialization in uncertain times. Those with an interest in commercialization and technology transfer, from students to scholars, practitioners to policymakers, will find this important collection of great value.
