International Journal of Intellectual Property Management (IJIPM), Vol. 9, No. 1, 2016

Abstract: Reports from the past decade have reported that Canada is a highly innovative country, but suffers from a bottleneck in technology transfer and commercialisation. In fact, many of the reports give Canada a failing grade when it comes to the commercialisation of innovation technologies. With substantial investments into public sector research, such a problem would reduce the public good from government funding of innovative research. The objective of this article is to assess a Canadian university's technology transfer activities from 1998 to 2008.
