Managing An Out-Licensing Program: The State-Of-The-Art

Ulrich Lichtenthaler

Technology licensing has recently become a broader trend in many industrial firms. However, the insights into the current extent and management of corporate out-licensing are strongly limited. Therefore, this paper presents the results of a questionnaire-based study into the outlicensing activities of 154 European firms across industries. The study provides large-scale empirical evidence for the scope of corporate out-licensing activities. Moreover, it deepens our understanding of the current state of managing out-licensing activities in industrial firms. After an introduction to the topic, the design of the study is described. Then, the results of the survey are presented, and managerial implications are discussed.
