About the Edition

Using data on U.S. universities, we show that universities that give higher royalty shares to faculty scientists generate greater license income, controlling for university size, academic quality, research funding and other factors. We use pre-sample data on university patenting to control for the potential endogeneity of royalty shares. We find that scientists respond both to cash royalties and to royalties used to support their research labs, suggesting both pecuniary and intrinsic (research) motivations. The incentive effects appear to be larger in private universities than in public ones, and we provide survey evidence indicating this may be related to differences in the use of performance pay, government constraints, and local development objectives of technology license offices. Royalty incentives work both by raising faculty effort and sorting scientists across universities. The effect of incentives works primarily by increasing the quality (value) rather than the quantity of inventions.

Discovery, Invention and Innovation. Objective: Define discovery, invention, and innovation. Discuss the interactions between these activities. Discuss the incentive system promoting each. Briefly discuss the evolution of institutions promoting these activities. Next, discuss two learning strategies that promote innovation.

  University management is meaningless without incentives, says Jonathan Jones, but they need to match official policy Carrot and sticks: incentives are a powerful tool, but their strength can. Incentives can include “sticks” such as legal or administrative requirements for researchers to disclose inventions to the university or PRI that employs them, but also “carrots” such as royalty-sharing agreements or equity participation in academic start-ups.

What incentives can be provided by the university, department, etc. Join colleagues in the TOPkit Community of Practice where you may ask questions, seek feedback, or share effective practices with an active, global professional community.

Although employers are required to pay compensation for employee inventions under the laws in many countries, existing legal literature has never critically examined whether such compensation actually gives employee inventors an incentive to invent as the legislature intends.

In Incentives and Invention in Universities(NBER Working Paper No. ), authors Saul Lachand Mark Schankermaninvestigate what drives academic research and technology licensing activities. They ask whether it is purely an intellectual pursuit or if economic incentives. The incentive effects are much larger in private universities than in public ones.

For private institutions there is a Laffer curve effect: raising the inventor's royalty share increases the license income retained by the university. The incentive effect appears to work both through the level of effort and sorting of academic scientists. ( K)Cited by:   Abstract. We show that economic incentives affect the commercial value of inventions generated in universities.

Speci–cally, we examine how the cash ⁄ow rights from university inventions (the share of license royalties received by academic inventors) a⁄ect the licensing value of inventions generated by universities.

The impact of incentives is larger in private Incentives and invention in universities book in public universities, and we provide new survey evidence on the organization and objectives of university licensing offices to explain this difference.
