Abstract

Explores the growing overlap of universities and industries in developing new technology for private gain, and how that blurring of boundaries impacts a university's traditional mission of teaching and research and the claim for public funding. The 14 studies, from a January 1996 workshop in Amsterdam, consider the construction of the knowledge-based regime, the operation of the triple helix, and universities in knowledge-based economies. Among the specific topics are the entrepreneurial university and the emergence of democratic corporatism, the emergence of research-technology communities across boundaries, and the desktop model of innovation in digital media.
