Priority Sequence of Generic Technologies Commercialization: Take Biotechnology for an Example
Abstract: With the establishing and improving of generic technologies development system in various countries, the obstacles which block the development of generic technologies have been transferred from basic R & D sessions to the downstream sessions, which refer to industrial applications. The research on integrating priority sequence of generic technologies commercialization in the stage of knowledge diffusion is desiderated. Given the limitation of generic technologies classification perspective based on bottom-up tree structure, using social network analysis method, this paper puts forward a method which identifying industrial generic technologies reversely by observing the sharing of proprietary technology to generic technologies from the top of technology tree, in order to pinpoint generic technologies with market conditions and those still need to be studied, moreover, to provide a scientific evaluation method for government intervention in the diffusion of generic technologies. In order to achieve this research, we take biotechnology as an example to conduct empirical test.
