Why has the United States established a new technology transfer regime, and how does it actually perform? Lee and his contributors see it as a ”set of new game rules” in which government, industry, and the academic community are allowed — authorized, in fact — to interact and collaborate toward the goal of successful technological innovation. Their book — thus far unique in its field — reports on the empirical research that examines how various independent components of the system interact and collaborate. In doing so the authors provide data and information on which policy assumptions are valid and which aren’t, which rules are helpful and which are hindrances, and how the various players in this ”game” assess its future. The result is an important contribution to the literature that explores the interface of business, government, and society — essential reading not only for academics, but also for corporate management concerned with business strategy and policy.
