6 The latter two groups engaged in three types of consultation: advice without use of MIT facilities or absence from the Institute; research at the client’s site; and research at the Institute involving the use of its equipment, facilities and space. It was not unusual for a faculty member to hire an assistant in his department’s lab to carry out work for firms. Although some faculty kept accounts and regularly made payments for their use of Institute facilities and equipment in their consulting practices a perception arose that Institute resources were sometimes being misused.
The report proposed to reduce, if not eliminate, consultation by lessening the financial need for faculty to seek outside work. On the one hand, the author believed that if salaries were raised the practice would decline. On the other hand he proposed to “tax” the income from consultation in those cases where a professor was either called off campus or was using Institute facilities. It was also proposed to institute charges for use of laboratory space, especially when assistants were employed.
Controversies over the appropriate role of the university in relation to industry, and the compromises negotiated to resolve these disputes, defined practices that could be accepted by both proponents and opponents of technology transfer. The resolution of a series of such conflicts at MIT, in the early twentieth century, first over consulting and then over the patenting of research and firm formation, created a regulatory framework for university–industry relations. Although the limits of academic involvement in technology transfer are still an issue and new conflicts periodically reappear, the issue of whether or not academia should interact with industry was resolved in these early disputes.
