Technology Transfer and US Public Sector Innovation provides an overview of US technology policies that are the genesis for observed technology transfer activities. By describing the technology transfer process from US federal laboratories and other public sector organizations, this exploration informs the reader in detail of how the transfer process behaves and the social benefits associated with it.

Empirical information and evidence are presented on myriad forms of technology transfer including, but not limited to, patents, licenses and CRADA activity. Publications are a form of technology transfer as are new metrics that quantify the efficiency of the technology transfer process.

Link and Oliver’s work will be of great use to public policy makers in industrialized countries, scientists in federal laboratories worldwide and academic researchers. In addition, it will hold an important position in national and academic libraries.
Critical Acclaim
‘In this important new book, Link and Oliver, carefully trace how technology transfer from the public sector has been the sleeping giant of innovation in the United States. With meticulous care in the data analyses, the authors provide compelling and irrevocable evidence highlighting the central role played by technology transfer from the federal labs and other public research programs that have fueled America’s innovative performance. With publication of this path breaking book, the key contributions of the public sector in driving American science, research, innovation and ultimately prosperity are clearing and unequivocally identified. It is a must read not just to scholars of science and innovation policy but also to thought leaders in business and public policy.’
– David Audretsch, Indiana University, US
