New Book: “University technology transfer: the globalization of academic innovation”

Edited by Breznitz M. Shiri and Henry Etzkowitz , published by Routledge

Universities have become essential players in the generation of knowledge and innovation. Through the commercialization of technology, they have developed the ability to influence regional economic growth. By examining different commercialization models this book analyses technology transfer at universities as part of a national and regional system. It provides insight as to why certain models work better than others, and reaffirms that technology transfer programs must be linked to their regional and commercial environments.
