Learning to Compete in European Universities
Wydawnictwo: Edward Elgar
Four important themes are addressed, namely `Emergent Strategies', `Diversification and Specialization', `Rethinking University-Industry Relations' and `Reflections'. Contributors include Luke Georghiou writing about the merger between The Victoria University of Manchester and UMIST; Andrea Bonaccorsi writing about differentiation in higher education; and Maryann Feldman writing about American technology transfer. Thus, the book provides a timely and critical reflection on what happens, as European universities transform from government-funded social institutions to become knowledge businesses operating in a competitive regime.
