Succesfull University Licensing – What to Manage?
The paper presents the framework for examining factors of successful licensing (simultaneously acknowledging
also other forms of transferring rights to university inventions) by trying to answer the question of what represents successful
licensing as this is the framework to understand what managing university licensing should or could strive for. We examine
two out-the-door measures (the time dimension measure and the scope dimension measure), two income generation
measures (direct income dimension measure and leveraging dimension measure) and two impact measures (quality
dimension measure and wide dissemination dimension measure). Next, we deliberate on some selected factors and try to, in
some instances, stretch the limitations of analyzing and using administrative university level data.
