Formatted abstract
Linking university research with industry - review of literature/statistics on Australia's research performance - analysis of differences in culture and management approach between the two sectors - review of contribution made by university based research to socio-economic objectives - conclusion that Australia's research performance lacks balance between that undertaken in the public and private sectors - analysis of why links form between the two sectors - conclusion that survival strategies, competitive pressures and government policy all play a role - focus on three forms of linkage: science parks, spin-off companies and colaborative research ventures - conclusion that collaborative research ventures are most appropriate for university involvement - analysis of literature on conditions required for collaboration - critical review of Cooperative Research Centres Program (a government attempt to link public and private sector research effort) - critical analysis of academic literature, government reports and personal experience to develop guiding principles for policy development within universities so as to effectively deal with increased interaction with industry - major conclusion that insufficient attention is paid to establishing the right conditions for research collaboration, with over-reliance on efforts to assert independence on the part of universities and by imposing a corporate culture on the part of industry.
