Managing University-Industry Relations: A Study of Institutional Practices from 12 Different Countries. Improving the Managerial Effectiveness of Higher Education Institutions.
This book is the synthesis of a research project that explored innovative management practices in the domain of university-industry linkages. Managers from 12 higher education institutions in Europe, Africa, Asia, and Latin America were invited to document their experiences in the management of interfaces, financial and personnel management, and the management of intellectual property. The case studies demonstrate that while relations with enterprises are increasing, institutions tend to adopt more proactive and better coordinated management approaches. They are also devising necessary rules and procedures to protect the traditional activities of higher education institutions from outside interference in order to make the most of university-industry linkages. The chapters are: (1) "The Research Project"; (2) "Participating Institutions and Their Economic Environment"; (3) "Policies and Prevailing Types of Linkages"; (4) "The Management of Interfaces"; (5) "Financial Management"; (6) "Personnel Management"; (7) "The Management of Intellectual Property"; and (8) "Conclusions." Two appendixes present guidelines for the case studies and a consultancy application form. Forty-six "boxes" highlight issues of special importance. (Contains 3 tables and 19 references.) (SLD)
