The Management of University-Industry Relations: Five Institutional Case Studies from Africa, Europe, Latin America, and the Pacific Region. Improving the Managerial Effectiveness of Higher Education Institutions.
Martin, Michaela, Ed.
Five case studies were conducted to collect empirical evidence on innovative mechanisms through which universities worldwide manage their relations with industry. Cases were selected from institutions of higher education in Israel, Papua New Guinea, Turkey, Brazil, and Uganda. These studies were selected for their innovative approaches, but also because they represent a wide range of development contexts. Taken together, the studies confirm the hypothesis that relations with industry have developed considerably over the past decade in all analyzed institutions. The scope of such relations is widening to embrace new types of linkages and new modalities for their implementation. The studies illustrate the variety of options that institutions have with regard to policy-making and organizational development. Chapters of this book are: (1) "Introduction"; (2) "YISSUM, the Interface for University-Industry Partnerships at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Israel" (Moshe Vigdor); (3) "The Management of University-Industry Relations in Papua New Guinea" (M. A. Satter and J. Pumwa); (4) "The Management of University-Industry Relations: Experiences of Bogazici University, Turkey" (Okyay Kaynak); (5) "The Management of University-Industry Relations: The Case of the University of Sao Paulo, Brazil" (Guilherme Ary Plonski); and (6) "The Management of University-Industry Relations at Makerere University, Uganda" (Avitus Tibarimbasa and Eriabu Logujjo). (Contains 6 figures, 12 tables, and 21 references.) (SLD)
