The UK-based based TCS (formerly the Teaching Company Scheme) has proven to be highly successful in fostering innovation and collaboration between research organizations and the wider industrial community. Of necessity, the scheme's administrative mechanisms are highly prescriptive. This paper compares and contrasts TCS with an Australian technology transfer scheme that has a specific focus on the manufacturing sector. The Australian programme has produced successful outcomes with few administrative controls.
