Technology Transfer survey

The World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) Technology Transfer Section is responsible for promoting the successful transfer of intellectual property (IP) and technologies from research institutions and universities to the marketplace and society, for the purpose of their further utilization and commercialization.

Given that one of the limitations for technology transfer (TT) and commercialization is the limited number of incentives for researchers to disclose inventions, collaborate with local and international private firms and participate in the commercialization process, WIPO has produced the Guide on Incentives in Technology Transfer –  How to Encourage, Recognize and Reward Faculty Researchers and Support Staff.

A related survey has been created and will take only 5 to 10 minutes to complete, but will allow stakeholders (researchers, TT practitioners, etc.)  to express their opinion on the subject.

Whether or not you are currently engaged as a researcher or practitioner in technology transfer activities, we strongly encourage your participation to express your views. Your responses will provide invaluable data that reflects your behaviour and opinions and will help identify and fix issues that hinder effective technology transfer. The analyses of the survey results will be included in a Guide targeted at universities and research institutions to develop sound data-driven decisions to create effective incentive programs for their researchers and TT staff.

Thank you for your help!
