Campus Licensing Deals Taking Off
25 February 1998 7:00 pm
Relations between academia and industry--which went into a deep chill during the 1960s and 1970s--have grown warm and cozy in the 1990s. The best evidence of the warming trend may come from deals made between universities and outside companies hoping to exploit ideas developed on campus. Last week, the Association of University Technology Managers Inc. (AUTM) released a survey of 1996 transactions by its 173 members. This sixth annual AUTM report shows a huge increase in business, with the total number of issued licenses growing at roughly 12% per year since 1991.
