Why commercialisation of research matters?

Commercialisation provides funding for research and is an opportunity for researchers to put science into practise. Commercialisation of research is also a way to benefit the whole society while creating an impact.
What are the benefits of commercialisation?

Would it not be better just to publish the results? What do I need to commit to, if I wish to commercialise my idea or invention?

For a researcher commercialisation of research is an opportunity to put science into practise. The commercialisation of research offers researchers new career opportunities and creates new business and jobs as science-based spinout companies born from the university.

And, because the university as IP owner will carry the responsibility and costs for funding the commercialisation of the innovation, submitting an invention disclosure is a unique opportunity that should not be missed.
