Valorisation of scientific results – Patent commercialisation scoreboard: European universities and public research organisations

Second in a series of patent commercialisation scoreboards by the EPO. This study is based on 686 interviews conducted with 241 European universities and public research organisations, and provides detailed information on their patented inventions, commercialisation patterns, and the challenges faced by research institutions in bringing them to market. It also looks at the role of technology transfer and licensing offices responsible for the exploitation of patents. Key findings include: European universities and public research organisations bring more than a third of their inventions to market; licensing is preferred channel of commercialisation, preferably in the home market; commercialisation partners include SMEs and large companies in almost equal measure.
