Factors Affecting University Technology Transfer

Factors Affecting University Technology Transfer

(p.16) CHAPTER TWO Factors Affecting University Technology Transfer
The Fountain of Knowledge

Shiri M. Breznitz

Stanford University Press

In this chapter, we start by considering external university factors—historical and environmental. We then move to internal factors—culture, policy, and organization—and consider the literature on organizational change. We conclude by presenting the theoretical approach of this book: there is no one formula for successful university technology commercialization. Universities affect their local economies using different mechanisms. The choice of mechanisms and their economic impact are influenced by the location (history and environment) in which the university is situated.

Keywords:   factors impacting university technology transfer, culture, policy, organization, theoretical approach
