The commercialization of academic knowledge is increasingly seen as a potential economic development model, particularly for improving the capabilities and economic performance of regions. This insightful volume investigates the emerging factors in knowledge commercialization from an international perspective and highlights research agendas and challenges to be met across academia, industry and government.

The expert contributors focus specifically on the new role of universities in regional economic development through knowledge commercialization, as well as university-industry interaction and the factors that influence knowledge and technology transfer. They explore ‘knowledge commercialization’ in the US, ‘knowledge valorization’ in Europe, and technology transfer dynamics in China. A forum for discussion of whether, why, and how commercialization and valorization of knowledge can lead to higher levels of innovation and economic development from an international perspective is also provided.

This thought-provoking book will prove a stimulating read for academics, students and researchers with an interest in regional economics, regional studies and knowledge management.

Unlocking Community Development: The Anchor Key | Rooflines

Unlocking Community Development: The Anchor Key | Rooflines | univeristy engagement | Scoop.it

Anchor institutions—a term used to describe public and nonprofit hospitals and universities—are today widely recognized for their role in community economic development. But they have the potential to do a lot more.

 

As Living Ciites President Ben Hecht noted in a blog post this past January, “Today, the largest economic force in a huge number of America’s 100 largest cities is a university or hospital.” Yet, Hecht added: “Despite this reality, few, if any, regional economic development strategies are built around these stable and rooted ‘anchor’ institutions.”

 

Of course, some exemplary efforts do exist. Among these is Syracuse University, which my co-author Rita Hodges of University of Pennyslvania's Netter Center for Community Partnerships and I profiled in a book published this fall, The Road Half Traveled: University Engagement at a Crossroads.

 

Led by President Nancy Cantor, who came to Syracuse in 2004, Syracuse University’s approach has been highly collaborative, working with community groups, business, government, nonprofits and schools to identify common goals.

Coal Seam Gas - As Clean As You Think?

Coal Seam Gas - As Clean As You Think? | univeristy engagement | Scoop.it

Are you worried about the environmental impact of coal seam gas, or do you actually see it as a clean energy solution?

 

A new research project done here at the ABC has revealed that the clean energy pay-off from coal seam gas is not as good as many people think.

 

The research shows that when fully operational, the industry could emit the equivalent in CO2 of Australia's entire car fleet.
