Management of University-Industry Linkages. Policy Forum No. 11. Proceedings from the Policy Forum Held at the IIEP (Paris, France, June 1-2, 2000).
Hernes, Gudmund; Martin, Michaela
To explore varying institutional responses to the structural problems involved in university-industry linkages, the International Institute for Educational Planning conducted case-study research during 1997 to 1999 and then held a Policy Forum to share and validate the insights gained from the projects. The Forum showed that one of the most important challenges for institutional policymakers is defining a legal framework and incentive systems that stimulate entrepreneurship at the institutional, departmental, or individual levels, while designing rules and regulations through which potentially perverse effects can be avoided. The papers from the Forum are: (1) "Trends in the Management of University-Industry Linkages: What Challenges Are Ahead?" (Gudmun Hernes and Michaela Martin); (2) "In What Way Do Changing University-Industry Relations Affect Academic Activities within Higher Education Institutions?" (Guilherme Ary Plonski); (3) "In What Way Do Changing University-Industry Relations Affect the Management of Higher Education Institutions?" (Michael Lewis Shattock); (4) "Organizational Responses: The Management of Interfaces. Experiences from the Hebrew University Jerusalem, Israel" (Moshe Vigdor); and (5) "Intellectual Property Rights and Rules on Conflict of Interest. Experiences from University College London" (Jeffrey Skinner). Also included are notes relating to the discussion of the working group sessions. Two appendixes present the program and list the participants in the Forum. (SLD)
