Structure and Culture in Faculty Work: Implications for Technology Transfer.
Dooris, Michael J.; Fairweather, James S.
Review of Higher Education, v17 n2 p161-77 Win 1994
A study of three biotechnology programs at research universities compared program types (institute, center, or program/department) as effective environments for technology transfer. Results suggest that the institute and center program types influence faculty less than traditional structures such as academic departments and that structure is in turn overshadowed by faculty culture (discipline, rank, tenure status).
