Description

Capitalizing Knowledge explores the academic-industrial interface in a sustained and critical analysis, drawing on expertise in a wide range of disciplines from the U.S., Latin America, and Europe. Using an international focus, the book examines the range of experiences, problems, and solutions that different countries have had in managing academic-industrial links. Of key importance to policy-makers in government, academia, and industry, Capitalizing Knowledge explores the current trends as well as the commercialization of universities as they seek to capitalize their research.

Review quote

"Capitalizing Knowledge deals with an important topic that is under much discussion at present. It has an international focus on the topic, which is quite unusual in the available literature. The material in the book is original and filled with interesting data and analyses." -- Philip Altbach, author of The Knowledge Context: Comparative Perspectives on the Distribution of Knowledge
