Academic knowledge and industrial development: International experiences and implications for the health industry (Part II)

By M.R. Di Tommaso and S.O. Schweitzer


In this special issue of the "International Journal of Healthcare Technology and Management" the focus is on the sole of universitites in the process of academic knowledge production and transfer, with contributions on experiences from different countries (i.e. Germany, Israel, Finland, China, Spain and Italy). As argued previously, the papers illustrate the principle that there is no single "best practice" for universities to follow with respect to intellectual property and its transfer to industry. Universities are all different, and so are countries and regions. And of course so are firms, themselves. What we can see, however, is that some universities have been unusually creative in crafting policies to suit their environment, and these experiences should be understood as universities try to promote their own knowledge transfer process
