COMPARISON CASE STUDIES OF TECHNOLOGY TRANSFER IN SILICON VALLEY VS. IN SILICON FEN

GLG Research/TWSC (TAIWAN)
Technology transfer refers to the movement of new technology from its creator or researcher to a user, especially as products or publications; also, the movement of new technology from developed areas to less-developed areas. However, the formation and the technology transfer may vary from the approachable academic resources, the funding budget, the venture capital size to the intrinsic property of technology itself. This paper will demonstrate comparison studies between Silicon Valley in U.S. and Silicon Fen in U.K. Both of them are located near the prestigious universities, among which are Stanford University for Silicon Valley and Cambridge University for Silicon Fen. The paper first present the individual features of Silicon Valley and Silicon Fen. Second, different formats of technology transfer activities corresponding to their features are shown. Third, further analysis are performed to examine the correlation and the relationship. In conclusion, while national policies may constitute a critical factor, the intangible research energy input from the surrounding universities and academia cannot be ignored, which not only attract the monetary investment but also contribute to the success of technology transfer.
