Intellectual property and university-industry technology transfer in Europe and the U.S
AbstractI survey the recent literature on the extent and characteristics of the phenomenon of academic patenting in the U.S. and Europe, and highlight differences and similarities between the two areas. I then examine the importance of academic patents as a vehicle for technology transfer, their commercial potential, and the systemic effects of the diffusion of intellectual property on the cumulative process of scientific enquiry.
