Abstract

The recent increase in the rate of commercialization of intellectual property at US and European universities has important performance and policy implications. We review recent studies of the antecedents and consequences of these activities and then draw some lessons learned for policy-makers. A key conclusion is that universities and regions must formulate and implement coherent and feasible technology transfer/ commercialization strategies.
