Abstract: This article identifies challenges experienced by developing countries as they seek to use their universities and research institutions to participate in knowledge led economic growth, which two drivers are defined as R&D investment and IP infrastructure. Those challenges include low investment in R&D and lack of IP innovation infrastructure necessary to convert research results into IP assets, including policies on ownership of research results, technology licensing offices and professional IP services. It describes networks in theory and practice and the role played by IP, and proposes R&D networks and IP hubs as a strategy to support appropriation and distribution of research results as technologies.
