Industry-University Research in Florida: Incentives, Barriers, and Prospects. A Final Report.
Paulson, Steven K.; And Others
A project to assess the range of incentives and programs to establish more extensive research relationships between business firms and the Florida State University System (SUS) is described. The focus was research and development in the high-technology areas. Information was sought on incentives and barriers affecting business-university research and approaches to strengthening cooperative relationships. The following types of information were used: published materials and data; interviews with key Florida industry, government, and university personnel; and questionnaires mailed to samples of high-technology business administrators and university administrators. A literature review and an explanation of the conceptual model for the project (organizational structure and interorganizational relations theory) are included. Among the findings is the point of view of the SUS administrator that the most helpful state action would be to provide research parks, personnel exchanges, and funds. Appendices include the survey questionnaires, information on empirical studies and literature reviews of tax and other fiscal incentives, sections of key Florida and federal legislation for joint university-business research, an illustrative protective agreement concerning research disclosure and review procedures for joint research conducted by Florida universities and business firms, information on types of operating joint business-university research programs, and a bibliography.
