Our paper sets out to explore the contingent institutional conditions
that underpin knowledge transfer, and particularly commercialisation,
from universities to enterprises across national borders. We explore the
phenomenon in four technology-focused and research leading (in the
national context) universities in Estonia, India, Portugal and the UK.
We argue that participants in interactions (despite the fact that they
maintain their core operations in different institutional fields)
possess common knowledge bases, and shared norms and cognitive
frameworks. In many cases however, the emergence of organisational rules
to facilitate interactions do not lead to the institutionalisation of
the processes at work: restricting the scope of both existing
interactions and their advancement and offering a central role to
nonpracticing entities. The paper advances university-led pooling of
intellectual property (geographically or sectorally) as an alternative
for institutionalisation.
