This report discusses how the utilisation of publicly funded research and development in Denmark can be improved. The main obstacle is the small size of the Danish economy, and the lack of large industrial enterprises. Danish R and D is a tiny fraction of R and D performed in the EC and OECD. It is traditionally spread over a large number of fields. The low volume of direct transfer is a consequence of the limited size of public R and D... Methods for achieving direct transfer of R and D results to industry are examined in detail; aspects of evaluation, protection, dissemination and licensing are discussed. The most effective way to transfer R and D results from public institutions to private enterprises is through personal contacts and cooperation. The Danish Academy of Technical Sciences plays an important role in this respect. The Technological Service System and its Service Institutes also function as a channel for technology transfer.
