University-Industry Research Relationships. Selected Studies.
National Science Foundation, Washington, DC. National Science Board.
The results of a study of university/industry research interactions are presented, along with four reports on collaboration, and an annotated bibliography. The study, "Current U.S University/Industry Research Connections" (Lois S. Peters, Herbert I. Fusfeld, and others), involved on-site interviews with 66 companies and 61 public and private universities that were top-ranking research and development institutions. The focus was fields of study in the physical and life sciences, plus some social science, business, and medical education programs. Types of interactions formed four major groupings: general research support, cooperative research support, support for knowledge transfer, and technology transfer. Appendices include a geographical listing of each of 475 research interactions, including the names of the institutions, the discipline, the mechanism of interaction, and the duration. Report titles and authors are as follows: "State College Science and Engineering Faculty: Collaborative Links with Private Business and Industry in California and Other States" (Frank and Edith Darknell); "University-Industry Connections and Chemical Research: An Historical Perspective" (Arnold Thackray); "University-Industry Cooperation in Microelectronics and Computers" (Erich Bloch, James D. Meindl, and William Cromie); and "Report on a National Science Foundation Workshop on Intellectual Property Rights in Industry-University Cooperative Research" (National Science Foundation). (SW)
