Economic Significance
“The economic significance of the research university goes
far beyond its role of education and training. For several
decades, university research has increasingly formed the
foundation of significant technological advancements.
These technologies enter the marketplace through research
collaborations with industry, licenses, and to an increasing
extent, university-driven efforts to turn new ideas into startup companies.”
Jan Crispin, Senior Research Economist.
The Economic Impact of Startup Companies
and Invention Licensees Originating from
Research at the University of Utah.

Investment Leverage
Risk Moderated Return
Universities and the
Innovation
Ecosystem
“Universities do not get enough credit for
the fact that as players in our innovation
ecosystem, they’re willing to gamble on
cash-strapped startups. At the end of the
day, who else is offering to pick up the
tab? … Warts and all, universities remain
willing to pay patent costs to support
expensive and increasingly sophisticated
IP strategies for startups who will likely
never be able to pay them back.”
