Humanities--Industry Partnerships and the "Knowledge Society": The Australian Experience
Cassity, Elizabeth; Ang, Ien
Minerva: A Review of Science, Learning and Policy, v44 n1 p47-63 Mar 2006
National research policies are today driven by the concept of the "knowledge society", in which development is deemed to follow the application of new ideas. Australia, like other countries, has encouraged partnerships between the universities and industry. This essay examines how Australian scholars in the humanities have responded to the Australian Research Council's "Linkage Projects". Their experience underlines the importance of viewing collaboration as social practice, and the need to find a satisfactory synthesis between academic and industry perspectives.
