Abstract
Collaboration between science and industry and the technology transfer activities have been argued to be crucial in the development and sustainability of a competitive knowledge-based economy. Previous studies have mainly focused on indicators such as patents, license income and spin-offs to measure productivity of technology transfer offices and in extension, return on investment. However patenting, licenses and spin-off creation are argued to be only a small part of the technology transfer activities conducted at public universities and have a smaller impact than traditional contract research. Very few studies systematically address the importance of contract research in general and service delivery in particular. This paper addresses this gap by looking in concert and contextualized at the importance of contract research activities, patenting and spin-off generation of public universities in a particular European region.
