Technology Transfer at U.S. Federal Laboratories: R&D --> Disclosures --> Patent Applications

No 21-2, UNCG Economics Working Papers from University of North Carolina at Greensboro, Department of Economics

Abstract: This paper describes relationships within the technology transfer process at U.S. federal laboratories. Using federal laboratory data on R&D, invention disclosures, and patent applications, aggregated to the agency level, quantitative estimates of the relationship among these metrics are presented. The policy-related finding is that a 10 percent increase in R&D per 100 scientists is associated with between a 1.52 percent and a 2.04 percent increase in patent applications per 100 scientists.
