Our thesis in this monograph is that an overlooked metric associated with the impact of the Bayhâ€“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 Bayhâ€“Dole Act. To substantiate this thesis, Bayhâ€“Dole like university technology transfer policies in 20 other countries are reviewed. In an effort toward an assessment of these Bayhâ€“Dole like policies, we explore in each country higher education expenditures on research and development (R&D) before and after the Bayhâ€“Dole like policies were adopted. We conclude, in terms of this metric, that in some countries the Bayhâ€“Dole like policies have been more effective than in others.
