Abstract

The "transfer of university technology" is not only a one-way transfer process of technological outputs matching a scientific discovery with a market need, but also the building of teams of university and business people working towards the common goal of technological knowledge creation. The result of a questionnaire survey of university TLOs in Japan (n = 40) reveals that 'individual-type TLOs' were fewer than expected, while 'organisational-type TLOs' were dominant. The members' employment status and previous occupations, and the time allocation for each TLO activity, differences among TLOs were noticeable.
