Gown to Town: The Yabatech Saga

A. A. Rufus, B.M. Cole


The need for industrial driven research in recent times is been promoted through patenting and commercialization of inventions in higher institutions of learning, which is aimed at meeting societal needs through the industry. The basic concept of technology transfer lies in the recognition that the existing technology is available in the academia and is needed in the industry. The purpose of this article describes how identified technologies are deployed from the institutions to the industry where qualitative and quantitative techniques are used to explore the transfer. This is to understand existing relationship and suggest more suitable arrangements through industry – academic linkage. Research and Development (R&D) department of the industry should relate directly with Research Centres of the Institutions to foster the desired need driven research in Nigeria.

Keywords: Academia, Industry, Need Driven Research, Technology Transfer.
