From the Inside Flap:

Technology transfer is the process of moving inventions andinnovations out of peoples'heads and into practical use. The nicething about technology transfer is that it also can be used to makemoney by placing technology where it has market value.

The Art & Science of Technology Transfer provides practicaladvice for determining just what a technology can do, discoveringapplications for the technology, valuating it,finding customers,structuring and negotiating deals, and supporting implementation ofthose deals. Author Phyllis Speser combines hands-on advice with aclearly constructed, easily understood framework that enablesreaders to determine how to commercialize technology "faster,better, and cheaper."

Dr. Speser writes with a sense of humor and fun that makes thisa highly readable book. The Art & Science of TechnologyTransfer contains four parts, The Game of Technology Transfer,Market Research, Strategy, and Doing Deals. It provides aninnovative look at how to market technologythat showshigh-technology companies, universities, federal labs, andindependent inventors and entrepreneurs how to make money off theirtechnology-based intellectualproperty assets. It explainslicensing, jointventure, strategic alliance, acquisition/merger,cooperative R&D, and other strategies for monetizingintellectual assets and when and why to use each. Combininginsights from game theory, legal analysis, cognitive philosophy,sociology, and socialpsychology with decades of hands-onexperience, Phyllis Speser explains both the qualitative andquantitative sides of technology transfer. The Art & Science ofTechnology Transfer equips readers with a wealth of handy tools,including abundant tables and graphics; in-depth, real-life casestudies that show how technology transfer works in a variety ofsettings; and appendices and checklists that address commonproblems ranging from how to search the Web to find market data andother information, to how to conduct competitive intelligence, anddetermine royalty rates and other clauses for term sheets.

There is a famous saying from the comedian Milton Berle, "Ifopportunity doesn't knock, build a door." This book teaches you howto build doors for technology and how to walk through them tocommercial success.
