This paper addresses the effects of incentives and policies on transferring research results from public organisations (e.g. universities, public research centres) to firms. The views in this paper are, for a large part, based on the findings of an extensive survey of academic papers and reports (this background study is available; see Section 1). By reviewing the academic literature, this paper attempts to facilitate informed policy-making by forming a link between two areas that until now have been relatively unconnected.
