A social responsibility view of the ???patent-centric linear model” of university technology transfer
While knowledge creation and dissemination–embodied in research and teaching–have long been responsibilities of colleges and universities, technology transfer is generally considered part of what has emerged in policy lexicon as the socalled “fourth mission” of higher education: economic development. 1 The emergence of a fourth mission implies that a university’s economic development mission is distinct from its other three traditional missions: teaching, research, and outreach missions.
