This study investigates trends and developments in the management of University business partnerships in Wales and benchmarks these against other universities in the United Kingdom (UK). The research documents links universities have with companies in terms of industrial research, Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTPs) and other forms of external collaborative partnerships, what these links are and who they are with. Comparison is made between universities in order to benchmark and assess “good/best practice” and potential barriers. Consideration of the commercialisation of Intellectual Property (IP) is undertaken with insights for improvements. Recommendations to improve the management of university Knowledge Transfer (KT) are given.
