The role of technology, the technological innovation and the transfer to the productive sector for its implementation in the form of new processes and / or new products is crucial for the development of any society. In the field of technology transfer, our goal is to understand the optimal structure of payments and the optimal duration of licensing agreements, as well as the breadth of the dissemination process, which should be designed by the patent holder when cannot market the innovation for itself and is forced to transfer it to users capable of producing with it. The analysis emphasizes the context in which the information regarding the innovation value is asymmetric between the owner of the innovation and potential users.
- Analysis of optimal technology transfer policies.
- Analysis of real technological transfer policies and comparison with those prescribed by the economic analysis.
- Recommendations for owners of innovations (universities, research centres, laboratories, independent inventors, etc.).
- Analysis of the impact of the public policy on patent protection.
