A MULTI-STAKEHOLDER PERSPECTIVE ON FACTORS AFFECTING TECHNOLOGY TRANSFER FROM ACADEMIA TO INDUSTRY IN THE BIOECONOMY

In the bioeconomy, technology transfer from academia to industry may exploit its strong innovation potential. However, this process is challenged by a wide variety of factors. This paper uses the mixed-method approach of concept mapping to investigate the factors as perceived by multiple stakeholders that influence technology transfer in the bioeconomy. Our findings suggest that the interconnectedness and the perceived individual factors vary across the different stakeholders involved. Based on our findings, we discuss practical implications both for the involved stakeholders and particularly for policy makers on how to achieve effective technology transfer in the bioeconomy.
