The Fountain of Knowledge

This chapter compares the two case studies and examines technology commercialization at other universities. A close examination of each of the cases identified different approaches to technology transfer and commercialization. Each has advantages and disadvantages. The comparison finds that there is no “secret sauce” or silver-bullet model that one can apply. Each university needs a tailor-made approach to commercialization, one that relies on a regional history, culture, economic, and research capability. No two universities are exactly the same, serving the same population or having the same history and culture. Hence, no two universities should have the same model of technology transfer. Importantly, the mere existence of a technology-transfer office is not a guarantee of technology commercialization.

Keywords:   University of Cambridge, Yale University, Georgia Institute of Technology, MIT, University of Oxford, technology-transfer model
