Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

The transfer and commercialization of technology is attracting increasing attention from a range of individual and institutional agents, both public and private sector, seeking to identify effective methods of exploiting university-generated knowhow. The growing numbers of studies being undertaken, particularly in North America and Europe, are shedding increasing light on alternative approaches to the commercialization agenda and the types of outputs that might be expected. Some universities see exploitation of their knowledge-base as a potentially valuable source of additional income as other funding streams become subject to more stringent constraints; however, for many institutions, the potential for exploiting their intellectual property portfolio for signifi can't fi nancial gain is quite limited.
