With the competitiveness of firms in an open and integrated world
environment increasingly reliant on technological capability,
universities are being asked to take on a growing role in stimulating
economic growth. Beyond imparting education, they are now viewed as
sources of industrially valuable technical skills, innovations, and
entrepreneurship. Developed and developing countries alike have made it
a priority to realize this potential of universities to spur growth, a
strategy that calls for coordinated policy actions.
The distinguished contributors to How Universities Promote
Economic Growth examines the wealth of international experience on
efforts to multiply links between universities and businesses. They
offer valuable and succinct guidance on some of the most effective
policy measures deployed by national and regional governments, firms
and universities to enhance the contribution that tertiary institutions
can make to economic change.
