Abstract

Different salient trends in university-based technology initiatives in the United States and Europe are discussed. The growth in private and public investment in university-based technology initiatives has raised important policy questions regarding the impact of such activities on researchers, universities, firms and local regions where such investments occur. The outcomes of research collaborations between industry scientists and university scientists are explored. It is concluded that the career paths of academic scientists and engineers affiliated with university research centers are quite difference than those characterized in the standard literature on career transitions of researchers.
