ATTP Global Commercialisation Metrics Benchmark Report

Leading global alliance ATTP has launched a report to assist governments in the development of research innovation policy

ATTP, the global alliance of leading national professional bodies for Technology Transfer, Knowledge Exchange and Research Commercialisation, has released a new report providing comparative benchmarking of global research commercialisation metrics.

The ATTP report allows for rapid assessment of research commercialisation performance and enables data and evidence-based decision making when considering research innovation policy.

Chair of ATTP, Dr. Tim Boyle states, “The lack of quantitative benchmarking of international (research commercialisation) performance has resulted in some nations using whole-of-economy data to subjectively inform research innovation policy.”

“A recurring theme, directed at several of the ATTP alliance members, is criticism of the performance of research commercialisation.”, said Boyle, “By releasing the data in this report we hope that we can raise the bar of research innovation policy throughout the world.”

The report comes at a critical time as the world starts to emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Given the current unprecedented circumstances, there has never been a better time to be involved in the research commercialisation profession. Our industry plays a key role in getting the intellectual property from our research labs into the hands of industry. This technology transfer results in new products, services, and jobs that will lead us out of the pandemic and drive economic recovery.”

Dr. Alwin Wong, immediate past Secretary-General of ISTA and a current member of the ATTP board, remarked, “The report is a consolidated effort of international tech transfer communities to converge on measurable economic outputs valued by governments at both regional and national levels, irrespective of their stage of development in innovation and technologies. In particular, China’s effort of technology commercialization can be better echoed by other economies in the world as they compare best practices and key metrics.”
