Policymakers in the US and elsewhere have adopted a series of reforms designed to encourage technology transfer from universities to firms and technology transfer is becoming increasingly common in the US. However, the university system in the US is pluralistic and the technology transfer process has a large degree of local autonomy. The result is a system with
significant heterogeneity. In this lecture we will review the technology transfer policies and practices in the US. We will also discuss some of the issues these new practices have raised and recent attempts by the technology transfer community to address these issues.
