Abstract

This paper discusses how to appropriately monitor and assess the performance of universities' knowledge transfer activities. We argue that different knowledge transfer activities, based on different models of how knowledge flows from university to industry, require different indicators for monitoring. We then compare,
in light of these different models, four monitoring exercises currently implemented in the UK, US and Canada, Australia and Europe. We derive some specific implications for the measurement of universities' performance as well as some more general implications
for the assessment of policies in support of knowledge production and transfer.
