Abstract: Our thesis in this monograph is that an overlooked metric associated with the impact of the Bayh–Dole Act is its effect on influencing university-based technology transfer policies in other countries. We refer to this phenomenon by the phraseThe Globalization of the Bayh–Dole Act. To substantiate this thesis, Bayh–Dole like university technology transfer policies in 20 other countries are reviewed. In an effort toward an assessment of these Bayh–Dole like policies, we explore in each country higher education expenditures on research and development (R&D) before and after the Bayh–Dole like policies were adopted. We conclude, in terms of this metric, that in some countries the Bayh–Dole like policies have been more effective than in others.
