Abstract

This paper analyzes antecedents of patent activity of 87 European universities. The findings reveal that more patent activity is observed within larger universities and at universities that encompass engineering and biomedical departments. Higher levels of scientific productivity and contract research coincide with higher levels of patent activity. The findings reveal that academic patenting is contingent on the combined effect of a scientific and entrepreneurial orientation of universities.
