Since the 1980s, China has worked to develop the technology commercialization capacity of its universities. Progress has occurred, but university technology commercialization remains on the periphery of Chinese economic development. Because university technology commercialization is predominantly a ‘law-based’ strategy, the authors examine whether China’s legal system adequately supports such efforts. Since the law does not operate in isolation, the authors conduct their analysis through the lens of China’s overall innovation system. This holistic approach enables the authors first to provide a more accurate analysis of the Chinese legal system’s ability to support university technology commercialization and also to generate useful insights on the strengths, weaknesses and future of the country’s commercialization efforts.
