Abstract

Universities are increasingly trying not only to pursue excellence in research, but further more to exploit its outcomes. A Knowledge and technology transfer of research results and inventions should be optimally posed to generate support and financial returns. The road from an invention to a useful innovation is complex and not always successful. It is critically to question whether research findings are always used in the sense of Universities. The great challenge is the variety of stakeholders that are involved in the innovation process. Therefore I conducted a survey to all patent relevant staff of five Hessian Universities. I received 453 answers of which ca 20% filed a patent in their University.
