The ASTP SurveyEdit
The ASTP survey 2006 has two main objectives:
- What is the performance of European TT ?
- How does European TT position itself with the USA ?
To be able to reach these goals, seven indicators were selected. One of the important feature of the indicators chosen is their compatibility with the American Association of University Technology Managers AUTM statistical indicators in order to allow extensive comparison between US and European public research institutions active in Technology Transfer
In order to minimize the time spent on collecting the data, data ranges covering 2004 and 2005 were defined. The survey was run in close collaboration with the MERIT group at the University of Maastricht with the financial support of Stem Cell Ventures which is gratefully acknowledged.
A free executive summary of the 2006 ASTP survey is available on the web site of the ASTP. The full report is available at no charge for ASTP members on the intranet of ASTP web site and can be also obtained at the price of €100 for non-members by contacting ASTP secretariat. Members can also access the presentation done by Laurent Mieville, member of the board in charge of the 2006 survey, who gave an overview of the results during the ASTP Turku conference.
Other Surveys or ReportsEdit
The Milken Institute released on September 20th, 2006 a report titled "Mind to Markets" using ASTP and AUTM survey data to draw comparisons between US and European institutions on innovation and technology transfer activities.
