The study concerns with the significant impact of entrepreneurial orientation (EO) of academic researchers on the research commercialization. Furthermore, it has been discussed that if trust among academic researchers is created to commercialize their research and to be engaged in commercial activities, it will increase commercialization rate and ultimately economic development. The study confers with those analyses which are exploratory in nature and helps to seek the research question i.e., to study impact of EO on research commercialization. The current study addresses the behavior of 405 university teachers teaching in various public and private sector universities in Lahore city of Pakistan under applied sciences discipline. Different statistical analyses were used to analyze the data i.e. Descriptive statistics, factor analysis (KMO and Bartlett’s test, Eigen values and total variance), regression and correlation were used for hypothesis testing and testing of inter item reliability respectively by using SPSS-20. A theoretical framework was developed using three dimensions for EO that is proactiveness, innovativeness and risk taking. The empirical result indicates that EO has statistically significant impact on research commercialization which is positively mediated by trust.
