Successful technology commercialization is a stepping stone in the growth of economy in any country. In Malaysia, the government has invested significant amount in research and development (R&D). However, only 3% has been successfully been commercialized. Thus, the objective of this study is to identify the barriers of technology commercialization in a public university. This study is a qualitative research. A case study has been chosen as the research strategy. A case study protocol was developed and used as an instrument to collect the data. 10 interviews have been carried out among the researchers and administrative staff. The findings indicate that funding, collaborations, internal structure (governance) and external environment such as government policy and leadership have been the main hindering factors in technology commercialization.
