Studying valorisation and technology transfer contracts for characterization and analysis of their success factors – COCON

Study of a cohort of valorisation and technology transfer contracts for identification and analysis of their results

The COCON project proposes to analyze a COhort of CONtracts as a corpus of «objects« from public research transfer and valorisation results that are patent licences, industrial agreements and contracts from two universities - Grenoble and Strasbourg.

COCON will allow producing indicators to understand the strategies involved in research transfer, the success, risks and failure factors and the socioeconomic impact in terms of innovation

The COCON project proposes to analyze a COhort of CONtracts as a corpus of «objects« from public research transfer and valorisation results that are patent licences, industrial agreements and contracts from two universities - Grenoble and Strasbourg. This “contract approach” will allow producing indicators to understand the strategies involved in research transfer, the success, risks and failure factors and the socioeconomic impact in terms of innovation: commercialization results for academic stakeholders, job creation, business, induced effects in existing firms, societal impact, etc.<br />Researchers in Management Science, Law and Applied Economics will study with a interdisciplinary approach a cohort of contracts provided by the actors in research transfer and promotion at the Universities of Grenoble and Strasbourg : How contracts or agreements address the exploitation of results (licenses, patents etc..), what is the kind and the underlying strategy of cooperative agreements or partnerships on research projects (IP rules for operating results) and contracts for services with private companies .

On the basis of indicators built in a trans-disciplinary approach, we will study the types, the strategies and outcomes of these valorisation and technology transfer operations. We will propose models answering to observations, and assess the relevance of those models. Surveys will be conducted by both studying the contract cohort and by actors interviews.
The work plan is organized into four main tasks to grasp objects and development strategies in an interdisciplinary way and to analyze them in terms of socioeconomic innovation:
- Task 1 – Typology of contracts and of the economical clauses of these contracts
- Task 2 - The performance of technology transfer
- Task 3 - Governance and strategies for research results transfer, valorisation, and promotion
- Task 4 - Summary, Deliverables and Dissemination

It is expected results in terms of:
- Indicators of research transfer at two levels:
o indicators related institutions (usually quantifiable)
o indicators related to socio-economic impact : economic and societal effects induced qualitative criteria including non-measurable
- Identifying factors of success / failure of the different objects (contracts) based on the identified models and parameters (ideal)
- Characterization of the strategies for research transfer, valorisation and promotion, including the issues of socio-economic innovation beyond the issues of research development at the institutional level.

The work in the first three tasks will contribute to the interdisciplinary project deliverables that will be therefore worked transversely (reports to the sponsor, synthetic work, seminars and conferences, publications in international journals) as part of a fourth task synthesis and dissemination.

The COCON project proposes to analyze a COhort of CONtracts as a corpus of "objects" from public research transfer and valorisation results that are patent licences, industrial agreements and contracts from two universities - Grenoble and Strasbourg. This “contract approach” will allow producing indicators to understand the strategies involved in research transfer, the success, risks and failure factors and the socioeconomic impact in terms of innovation: commercialization results for academic stakeholders, job creation, business, induced effects in existing firms, societal impact, etc.
Researchers in Management Science, Law and Applied Economics will study with a interdisciplinary approach a cohort of contracts provided by the actors in research transfer and promotion at the Universities of Grenoble and Strasbourg : How contracts or agreements address the exploitation of results (licenses, patents etc..), what is the kind and the underlying strategy of cooperative agreements or partnerships on research projects (IP rules for operating results) and contracts for services with private companies .
On the basis of indicators built in a trans-disciplinary approach, we will study the types, the strategies and outcomes of these valorisation and technology transfer operations.

The work in these first three tasks will contribute to the interdisciplinary project deliverables that will be therefore worked transversely (reports to the sponsor, synthetic work, seminars and conferences, publications in international journals) as part of a fourth task synthesis and dissemination.
The results of the project will therefore be to identify consistencies or inconsistencies between the "objects" of valorisation, strategic representations that motivate them and the measurable results or more subjective results in terms of social or societal innovation. Specifically, it is expected results in terms of:
a) Indicators of research transfer at two levels:
-indicators related institutions (usually quantifiable)
-indicators related to socio-economic impact : economic and societal effects induced qualitative criteria including non-measurable
b) Identifying factors of success / failure of the different objects (contracts) based on the identified models and parameters (ideal)
c) Characterization of the strategies for research transfer, valorisation and promotion, including the issues of socio-economic innovation beyond the issues of research development at the institutional level.
