Abstract [en]

Studies have examined the contributions made by universities to technological development in industry from the viewpoint of the recipient firm. However, very little detailed examination has been made of the proactive role that the university can play in developing strong linkages with industry, or of the strategies and policies that are undertaken to increase the process of technology transfer from academia into local indigenous business. Using three specific cases, this paper examines the role that universities play in regional economic development. The results show that technology transfer with industry is most effective when resources go to activities that are carried out in close cooperation with external actors and when the clear purpose of those activities is to satisfy real needs. Selective and goal-oriented initiatives are preferable to broad and unfocused programmes.
