Ortmans: The Untapped Potential of Research Universities

Jonathan Ortmans at the Policy Dialogue for Entrepreneurship has an interesting post on the incredible economic assets that make up part of the entrepreneurial ecosystem of the American Research University.

Ortmans does a great job of highlighting some of the issues at hand and also the growing concern over Technology Transfer Offices that were created by the Bayh-Dole Act of 1980. He also points to the work of Robert Litan and Lesa Mitchell at Kauffman and their ideas on opening up the university intellectual property process to market forces.

The blog post mentions a February 24th meeting of University leaders and key stakeholders that will be hosted by the Department of Commerce’s new Office of Innovation and Entrepreneurship.
