This research analyzes how to increase the efficiency of the research commercialization process of Thammasat University. This research is qualitative research which studied the case study of Thammasat University consisting of 2 researchers, 2 officers of the Center of Intellectual Property and Business Incubator, and 1 entrepreneur. The research process comprises of three stages: 1) Reviewing the literature. 2) Conducting the empirical study by an in-depth interview with stakeholders. 3) Analyzing and concluding by using content analysis.

In some cases of the regulations, those who are involved may not have knowledge or understanding or may not be consistent in practice. Therefore, the university may provide knowledge to the researchers or those who are involved in the university’s regulations related to the research commercialization in each related category. As well as providing knowledge on intellectual property law, patent law, including regulations or guidelines for the Thammasat University's research commercialization to be clear and consistent with the practice to provide guidelines for those involved. In order to further enhance the university's research commercialization.
