Research Faculty, Entrepreneurship and Commercialization: The Case of Kansas State University


  • Amanor-Boadu, Vincent
  • Metla, Chandra Mohan Reddy


In this study, we assess the relationships between the demographic characteristics of researchers and their perspectives on entrepreneurship and the commercialization of their inventions, and analyze the relationship between faculty perceptions of university commercialization policies and their entrepreneurial orientation. We conclude that there is a need for effective educational programs to address each of the issues and increase awareness among faculty and researchers.
