The two major methodologies used are frequency and bi-variate analyses. The objective of the survey was the identification of relations between university researchers’ and companies’ characteristics, technology transfer features, barriers and motives and served to set up the typology for companies and university researchers as basis for identifying suited recommendations to improve technology transfer.
