Overview

This book is a cross-national comparative study of university-industry R&D collaborations in the United States, the United Kingdom, and Japan.

The volume provides extensive detail about the historical traditions that have shaped the attitudes and public policy towards technology transfer within each of these nations. Current statistical data is provided to illustrate the extent of university-industry R&D collaborations in each nation. The particular problems faced by each nation in their efforts to increase the levels of transfer are discussed. The volume highlights the process of how each nation adopts the successful policies of the other nations.
