From Technology Transfer to Third Mission: strategies, organizational models and tools


Collaborative University-Industry relations have undeniably generated real economic effects, in terms of creation of new products, processes, innovative capabilities, options, knowledge and networks in research or production. During the last half of the 20th century, one of the main features of industrial economics has been the role of expenditure on collaborative University-Industry activities, which has been largely seen as an important source of industrial and economic growth. Behind these developments, there is a belief that research conducted in academic and also in government laboratories is some way crucial to the realization of future opportunities for industrial innovation, and that this potential is best realized by the establishment of close links between industries and research institutions.

The staff training is intended to explore those relationships and their impact for business growth and innovation.
