Determinants of academic research commercialization in Iran gas industry


The aim of this research is to identify determinants of academic research commercialization in the Iranian gas industry. For this purpose, we have applied a mixed research methodology. After reviewing the literature we conducted interviews with academics that have experience in the gas industry commercialization in order to develop the research questionnaire. Qualitative data were analyzed by codifying the interviews. To analyze the quantitative results we applied the exploratory and confirmatory factor analysis (EFA, CFA). The results show that there are 6 latent variables and 28 observed variables including the gas industry academic research commercialization requirements and prerequisites in Iran.
