El objetivo de este artículo es analizar los factores de la carrera profesional y académica que influyen sobre la propensión a transferir tecnología por parte de los investigadores universitarios. Para ello elaboramos un marco teórico que recoge los factores que han sido destacados en la literatura sobre el tema. Este marco teórico se contrasta para el caso de los investigadores de la Universidad de Huelva, lo que permite identificar los rasgos de los investigadores más propensos a implicarse en actividades de transferencia de tecnología. De acuerdo con los resultados obtenidos, serían varones de las ramas de Ciencias, Ingeniería y Arquitectura, altamente productivos en publicaciones de libros y artículos, no doctores y que ocupan puestos poco estables en la universidad. The objective of this paper is analyzing the factors related to the academic and professional career that have influence over the propensity of university researchers to get involved into technology transfer activities. Our theoretical framework includes the factors that have been identified in the literature. This theoretical framework is contrasted for the case of the University of Huelva, finding the highest propensity in male pre-doctorate researchers on Sciences, Engineering and Architecture, highly productive in books and papers publishing in not tenure positions at university. Keywords: University-industry technology transfer; individual factors; creation of spin-off firms; patents.
