"A valuable and insightful study for understanding how a changing university system might still be a major driver of economic growth in the age of globalization"
Enrico Santarelli, Professor of Economics, University of Bologna.
"This book will help us better understand why and how universities around the globe vary in the degree they are able to bring inventions generated in university research labs to the marketplace. It will provide helpful guidance for universities embarking on technology transfer for the first time or are reconsidering how they can improve."
Harvey A. Goldstein, Vice President, MODUL University – Vienna, Professor and Head of Department of Public Governance and Sustainable DevelopmentVom Verlag:
Over the last two decades, universities have found themselves at the centre of a growing debate about the economic future of regions. In this era of globalization, universities have become primary players in the generation of new knowledge and innovation. Through technology commercialization- the dissemination and commercialization of their ideas to the private market- universities have an ability to directly impact regional economic growth. Since the Bayh-Dole Act of 1980, many universities in the USA and around the world have changed the way they approach technology commercialization.
This edited volume compares and analyzes different models of university technology commercialization. In particular, the book focuses on external and internal factors that affect the ability of universities to transfer technologies from the public to the private market. External university factors include regional commercialization, culture and history. Internal university culture focuses on policy, culture, and organization of technology transfer within the university. Unlike many studies that review best practices for technology transfer, this book will demonstrate that there is no one model of technology transfer being implemented, and that some models work better than others.
This book will be highly relevant to all those with an interest in innovation studies, organizational studies, regional economics, higher education, public policy and business entrepreneurship.
