Technology Commercialization: Opportunities and Challenges

  • K. L. Crandell
Part of the Applications of Cryogenic Technology book series (APCT, volume 10)


Commercialization of technology from university and national laboratory settings has changed from a passive activity in the early 1970’s to an active process in the 1990’s, involving exclusive licensing and new venture formation. Researchers are playing an increasingly important role in the development of promising technology and markets as consultants to licensee firms and stakeholder participants in new ventures. The challenges facing the researcher and business development professional involved in the licensing and venture processes will be discussed.
