Cooperative research and development : the industry, university, government relationship by Albert N Link( Book )

15 editions published in 1989 in English and German and held by 216 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this decade and especially in the past five years, cooperative research arrangements of various types have proliferated. With only a short lag, economists and policy analysts have begun assessments of the nature and efficacy of this important mechanism. A majority of these analyses have focused on the industry-university interaction. Much less attention has been devoted to the industry-government interaction and the various industry strategies and cooperative research structures to be found in the United States and among its foreign competitors. Therefore, this book focuses on the latter two areas. Cooperative research is an important tool in the struggle for international competitiveness. The efficiency gains inherent in the use of this mechanism and the ability to share risk are the two most frequently cited advantages of cooperative research. Yet, in an era of shortening technological life cycles, the truncating of the early stages of a technology's development can be a very important factor in determining that industry's future competitive standing
Valuing an entrepreneurial enterprise by David B Audretsch( Book )

14 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 211 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Entrepreneurs generally lack the marketing capabilities necessary to bring their new product to market. To engage the resources required to do this, they must somehow place a value on the enterprise. However, all of the methods of valuation currently available are based on the use of historical or current revenues, and therefore are not applicable to an entrepreneurial enterprise with a first-time product. In Valuing an Entrepreneurial Enterprise, Audretsch and Link present a valuation method uniquely tailored to emerging technology-based ventures that have no revenue history to lean on. Unlike many traditional methods, theirs does not take into account the track record of companies and products similar to that being valuated. Instead, it draws on economic theory to formulate a solution to the problem. The book develops conceptual ground, including trends in entrepreneurship, models of innovation, and the economics of standards and entrepreneurship policy. The authors review the traditional valuation methods and illustrate them numerically with case studies to show how the traditional approach produces an incorrect valuation. The core of the book presents the new methodology and demonstrates how it avoids the pitfalls of past approaches. The authors also show how public policy on technology and infrastructure changes valuations of start-up firms in areas such as stem-cell products and renewable fuels projects. Valuing an Entrepreneurial Enterprise will serve as a valuable resource for advanced students, economists, financial planners, and valuators interested in new valuation methods and the theory behind them, as well as those interested in entrepreneurship"--Provided by publisher

Public/private partnerships : innovation strategies and policy alternatives by Albert N Link( Book )

18 editions published between 2006 and 2010 in English and held by 137 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Research and development (R & D) leads to innovation, and innovation leads to technological change. Technological change, in turn, is the primary driver of economic growth. Public/private partnerships -- cooperative relationships among industry, government, and/or universities -- leverage the efficiency of R & D and are thus a critical aspect of a nation?s innovation system. This text is intended for upper-level undergraduate and MBA courses such as Economics and Technology, Economics of Innovation, and Economics of Science and Technology, among others. The first chapter introduces the concept of public/private research partnerships along with other concepts fundamental to an understanding of innovation and technology policy. The framework chapters (2-5) set forth an argument for the public?s role ? government?s role ? in innovation in general and in public/private partnership in particular. The remaining chapters (6-14) describe a number of public/private partnerships and, to the extent possible, evaluate their social impact
Innovation in the U.S. service sector by Michael P Gallaher( Book )

13 editions published between 2006 and 2016 in English and held by 135 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book contributes toward a better theoretical understanding of innovation in the US service sector by focusing specifically on the disparate nature and role of R & D in the service sector compared to the manufacturing sector. Based on this understanding of the nature and scope of R & D in the service sector - and taking as given that R & D is a critical input to the innovation process and innovation drives economic growth - the book illustrates a theoretical model of service-sector innovation and compares and contrasts it to the traditional theoretical model of manufacturing innovation."--p.

The Chicago handbook of university technology transfer and academic entrepreneurship by Albert N Link( Book )

7 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As state support and federal research funding dwindle, universities are increasingly viewing their intellectual property portfolios as lucrative sources of potential revenue. Nearly all research universities now have a technology transfer office to manage their intellectual property, but many are struggling to navigate this new world of university-industry partnerships. Given the substantial investment in academic research and millions of dollars potentially at stake, identifying best practices in university technology transfer and academic entrepreneurship is of paramount importance. The Chicago Handbook of University Technology Transfer and Academic Entrepreneurship is the first definitive source to synthesize state-of-the-art research in this arena. Edited by three of the foremost experts in the field, the handbook presents evidence from entrepreneurs, administrators, regulators, and professors in numerous disciplines. Together they address the key managerial and policy implications through chapters on how to sustain successful research ventures, ways to stimulate academic entrepreneurship, maintain effective open innovation strategies, and improve the performance of university technology transfer offices. A broad and ambitious work, the handbook offers comprehensive coverage for universities of all types, allowing them to confidently handle technology commercialization and further cultivate innovation."--Publisher's website

9 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 82 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Essays in public sector entrepreneurship( Book )

9 editions published in 2016 in English and German and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book explores public sector entrepreneurship from an international perspective. It features essays from eminent scholars in the field addressing entrepreneurial public policies from different countries. Public sector entrepreneurship is at the cusp of becoming a watchword in international policy circles. This book is a pioneer volume in this emerging field and provides topics and policies that are broadly applicable across different economies. Public sector entrepreneurship refers to innovative public policy initiatives that generate greater economic prosperity by transforming a status-quo economic environment into one that is more conducive to economic units engaging in creative activities in the face of uncertainty. In today’s economy, public sector entrepreneurship affects that transformation primarily by increasing the effectiveness of knowledge networks; that is, by increasing the heterogeneity of experiential ties among economic units and the ability of those same economic units to exploit such diversity. Through policy initiatives that are characterized by public sector entrepreneurship, there will be more development of new technology and hence more innovation throughout the economy."--Publisher's website
