Models and Methods of University Technology Transfer
Models and Methods of University Technology Transfer covers the rise of university technology transfer since the 1980's, as well as the economic and academic benefits that stem from the commercialization of university-discovered technologies. Currently, most literature on university technology transfer focuses on institutions that facilitate commercialization, and models that oversimplify the technology transfer process by assuming that the knowledge flow is linear. Models and Methods of University Technology Transfer reviews existing literature regarding university technology transfer in terms of the process within the traditional linear model. After an address of the limitations of the traditional model, alternatives conceptualizations of technology transfer are presented in order to more accurately illustrate university technology transfer in practice.
