Johnson, 1966“There’s a lot more to a liberal education than improving the economy” Derek Bok, 2009Our society’s ability to make policy decisions on grounds other thaneconomic ones is decreasing and important non-economic values may beleft behindOn the other hand, increased productivity and an expanding economyimprove human well-being Vice President for Research The University of Utah Berman, E.P.

    15. 15. Licensing of Intellectual Property is Just One of Several Ways Universities Help the Transition of Knowledge into Practice 1. Movement of highly-skilled students into public or private employment 2. Publication of research results in the open research literature that is read by workers in all sectors 3. Personal interaction between the creators and users of new knowledge (e.g, via professional meetings, seminars, industrial liaison programs, etc.) 4. Corporate-sponsored research agreements with university researchers 5. Multi-firm arrangements such as university-industry cooperative research centers 6. Personal individual faculty and student consulting arrangements with private firms 7. Entrepreneurial activity of faculty and students occurring outside the university without involving university-owned intellectual property (IP) 8. Licensing of IP to established firms or new start-up companies Vice President for Research Merrell, S. & Mazza, A.-M.
