Abstract [en]

Thispaper focuses on knowledge generation and the way in which it is transferredfrom universities to industry. Most well reputed universities have severaldepartments and university-run enterprises that engage in research. The purposeof these research units is to help universities provide breakthrough innovationthrough the generation of new knowledge. The generation of new knowledgecontributes to the field of science and technology; in turn, industry can usethis knowledge to produce new innovative products or improve existing ones.This study aims to identify the process of knowledge transfer from universitiesto industry. For this we chose to study China's University Technology TransferOffices (UTTOs) to gather concrete evidence of university knowledge generationfor commercial use in industry. Theobjective of this study is get in-depth information about the role of UTTOs inthe transfer of such knowledge. Our study was carried out as a qualitative casestudy in the Anhui province of China. Data was mainly collected throughsemi-structured interviews with technology transfer experts working intechnology transfer offices. Collected data were analyzed using a knowledgetransfer model with six phases: 1) awarenesss, 2) acquisition, 3) transformation, 4) association, 5) application, and 6) feedback. This papercontributes by offering a detailed description of the knowledge transferprocess and specifically the role and activities of UTTOs. This research alsohelps Chinese and international researchers currently carrying out research onthe technology transfer process in China.
