Abstract

Governments have realized the increasing importance of the role of universities play in creating and diffusing knowledge as part of the process of innovation. Similarly, universities are now recognised as the seed bed for business firm formation. This has led to the commercialisation of academic research within publicly funded research institutions such as universities receiving increasing recognition in studies of technology management and economic development. Numerous programmes and supporting facilities have been made available by governments to enable universities to share the ‘laboratory life’. Despite positive supports from government and universities, little research has been carried out into such activities in the context of developing economies. This study aims to fill the gap by studying the commercialisation activities of universities in Malaysia. The study investigates the role of government and universities by focusing on their initiatives to promote the commercialisation of academic research in universities. The main objective of the study is to understand the current trend of commercialisation activities in Malaysian Universities. A qualitative-interview is used as the main method of data gathering from the three universities.
