(p.41) CHAPTER THREE The US and UK Technology Commercialization Framework
The Fountain of Knowledge

Shiri M. Breznitz

Stanford University Press

This chapter describes the historical and national framework in which the studied universities operate. The chapter finds that the universities had different relationships with industry in the two countries. US higher education institutions had strong industrial ties from inception, whereas in the United Kingdom such institutions started to develop ties with industry only in the past two decades. Importantly, regional economic contribution has been an inseparable part of American universities, a part that UK universities have just started to grapple with in the past decade.

Keywords:   national framework, regional framework, Cambridgeshire, New Haven County, UK, USA, science and technology policy
