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.
