  • 2. Academic knowledge/ research results insocial and organization sciences  Multiple types of research products: non-patentable knowledge  Large portion of ‘non-esoteric’ knowledge;  Conceptual uses (rather than instrumental only);  Multiple potential ‘users’: policy- makers; economic actors, communities, lay people;  Collaborative research between researcher and ‘subjects / users.A. Mesny – USAGE - 24 février 2012 – HEC Montréal 2
  • 3. Pathways of knowledge mobilization/ transfer Tech transfer: Patents Licencing Teaching Spin-offs Publications (academic and non academic) Contract Collaborative research research Networking activities Consulting Engaged scholarship Executive (unpaid academic development consulting, etc.) Commercial Non commercialA. Mesny – USAGE - 24 février 2012 – HEC Montréal 3
  • 4. Patenting & licensing activities 1. “Only a small fraction of the innovative knowledge that is transferred out of universities; 2. Do not reflect directly the broader social or economic value stemming from university research; 3. May impede rather than facilitate the dissemination of university technological knowledge.” (Bercovitz & James, 2009, p. 8)A. Mesny – USAGE - 24 février 2012 – HEC Montréal 4
