Abstract

This study examines institutional characteristics of universities from which scientists in private industry procure research information. Results indicate that research expenditures, faculty quality and salary, and most importantly for policy purposes, land-grant status are significantly associated with the utilization of university scientific research by firms. Urban location and the presence of cooperative research structures do not have predictive value.
