AbstractCommercialization of the university researches and innovations becomes more and more important in this era of volatile changes. Every day we could feel the challenges associated with this process in any knowledge based institute, such as universities, research centers, R&D centers, etc. Commercialization challenges are an integral part of these entities, and their managers are looking for some ways to handle them. In the present study, we used the Delphi method to find the main challenges and main solutions for commercialization of the university researches and innovations in Iran. After reviewing the literature, the challenges are considered and then the solutions are proposed. Finally, the paper concludes with a discussion of the research findings.
