Technology transfer and commercialization of innovations at Canadian universities
This paper analyzes university-industry technology transfer (UITT) and innovation capabilities development at Canadian universities. In so doing, it discusses the Canadian experience in terms of science and technology policy and UITT. Some governmental initiatives both at federal and provincial levels are presented searching to rank Canada among top countries in the world in terms of R&D and innovative performance. The Canadian case might be particularly interesting to analyze in relation to UITT for several reasons. However, university spin-off creation has become an important mechanism to transfer technology from universities to industry since it has important impacts on economic value and job creation.
