Study on technology transfer agreements

This project is a study on the overall approach and the appropriate methodology to address the  question of how technology markets are functioning from the perspective of mostly smaller stakeholders such as SMEs and Technology Transfer Offices at universities and research institutes. Based on relevant information gathered from these stakeholders the study aims to draw up a set of recommendations on how the framework conditions, regulatory environment and practices, including those based on national and European legislation, could be improved. In order to address these objectives this study aims at increasing the information available on licensing practices and related problems faced by contractors when licensing technology “in” or “out”.
