Abstract:Knowledge valorisation is considered to be the fourth task of university hospitals (UMCs). All UMCs in the Netherlands have assigned this task to a Technology Transfer Office (TTO). TTOs have the task to support the UMC employees in protecting, marketing and commercialising their knowledge. Although the subject of knowledge valorisation receives a great amount of attention, there is little literature available on the Dutch knowledge valorisation climate. The international literature on the subject is more comprehensive. We construct a framework for knowledge valorisation tasks and activities, based on international literature. Within the framework, we divide the knowledge valorisation process into four phases, Identification (e.g. screening and scouting activities), Protection (e.g. patenting), Marketing (e.g. performing a technology assessment) and Commercialisation (e.g. licensing or creating a spin-off company).
