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.

Review:

"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 Development
