Brokers on the Boundary: Academy-Industry Liaison in Canadian Universities.
Fisher, Donald; Atkinson-Grosjean, Janet
Higher Education, v44 n3-4 p449-467 Oct-Dec 2002
Traces the institutionalization of industry-liaison offices and commercialization of research in Canadian universities. Describes how the managers "capture the benefits" of discoveries generated by researchers, and identifies four major themes: intellectual property policy, culture conflict, boundary work, and the public good. Explores what is lost when capital is allowed to enter university culture in such a direct way. (EV)
