Study on technology transfer agreements


This Study contributes to filling the knowledge gap on tech transfer in Europe by providing more information on licencing practices and related problems faced by contractors (especially smaller firms and Technology Transfer Offices that represent universities or public research organisations) when licencing technology “in” or “out”. The Study is centred around an in-depth survey, to be designed with equally deep knowledge of the underlying literature and available market data, and aimed at generating not only market data, but also possible policy implications and recommendations for future policy initiatives.
