University technology transfer is growing in China and is vital to China’s innovation and intellectual property program. This paper provides a literature review used to create a theoretical framework for explaining conflicts between university technology transfer participants. Economic development and business competitiveness relies on innovation and intellectual property generation. Given increased investments in university research and Chinese universities, it is important to be aware of conflicts between university technology transfer office staff and faculty within academic exchanges. University technology transfer is growing in China and is vital to China’s innovation and intellectual property program. Conflicts between university technology transfer participants can thwart efforts to create thriving, successful university technology innovation and commercialization programs. This paper provides a literature review which defines insecurity as perceived threats felt by both the faculty researchers and TTO staff. From this literature review, a theoretical conceptual framework and hypotheses were developed to explain this phenomenon.
