This study attempts to provide a criteria-based approach that can be used to evaluate the potential for technology transfer and commercialisation of a new technology from university research. More specifically, this study offers the critical factors for assessing marketability and feasibility of an innovation for the commercialisation and technology transfer process. The Delphi technique has been used to refine and categorise assessment criteria identified from various models and frameworks that emerged from literature. Proposed categories of criteria that are found to be important in the evaluation and assessment of a new technology for the commercialisation purpose include: Technological Readiness; Legal and Regulatory; Social Benefits and Impact; Economic and Market Factors.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
