This study aims at establishing a knowledge transfer system between academics and industries in the Chungnam Region. We analyze the difficulties encountered by the technology licensing offices of universities in the Chungnam Region through a practical analysis of the current situation regarding the transfer of the knowledge developed in the universities. The problems found included the poor circumstances of the TLO of the universities, very limited number of requests for knowledge transfer by the companies, distrust of university technologies and the absence of related networks and platforms. Especially, there is insufficient concern and recognition of the regional actors in the knowledge transfer system. Therefore, in order to improve the regional competitiveness, these problems should be fixed by enacting suitable government policies.
