Wesort and investigate the first-hand interview data and second-handnews and video data, and then use the qualitative research andanalysis software NVIVO to analyze the high-frequency words andextract the subject words. Based on the analysis and observation, we find that the successful industrialization of university researchis closely related to its knowledge transfer. Second, the uniqueand robust heterogeneous knowledge formed during the process of University-Industry knowledge transfer is unique and robust.
