Abstract

In Malaysia, university-industry links, particularly through commercialisation of research results, has been put higher in the national science and technology policy agenda since the mid1990s. University-industry links feature significantly in a series of development plans and policy documents over the past decade, including Knowledge-based Economy Master Plan and Second National Science and Technology Policy and Plan of Action (ISIS, 2002; MOSTE, 2003). Closer relationships between universities and industry, especially in research and technological activities, had been encouraged by the government in the belief that they can enhance the nation's competitiveness by promoting innovative activities in industry and entrepreneurial activities in universities; and by improving the nation's indigenous technological capability and capacity. Commercialisation of research results, in particular, can contribute directly to the creation of wealth and economic development.
