Since 1980, when the United States government first allowed universities and laboratories to reap commercial profits from federally-funded projects, top institutions have been licensing their research. Over the past decade, more and more institutions believe the big money is in commercializing the research themselves. What are the approaches and elements involved in bridging the gap between academic research and entrepreneurial commercial success? Mind into Matter explores the hiostory and issues of transferring ideas from university researchlabs to the marketplace, and the commercial and global benefits of this process.
