Scientists in the laboratory often fail to take advantage of the commercial exploitation of their research. Technology Transfer is a careful account of how to start the process of commercialization of technology, and describes in detail the difficulties, and amount of time needed, to carry the process through to a successful conclusion. This book provides a much needed step-by-step guide to the commercialization of research. It addresses three major themes: how to protect your intellectual property; how to develop it commercially via licensing and business start up ; and how to finance and manage your new company. This book is essential reading for any research scientist whose work has commercial applications.
