OECD publishes report on University-Industry Collaboration
On 11 April 2019, the OECD launched a new report on "University-Industry Collaboration: New Evidence and Policy Options". The report discusses challenges and opportunities in assessing the impacts of science-industry knowledge exchange on innovation. It provides new evidence on joint industry-science patenting activity and academic start-ups, as well as on the impact of geographical proximity between research institutions and industry on local innovation. The report explores the complex set of knowledge-transfer channels, such as collaborative research, co-patenting, academic spinoffs, and their relative importance across science fields and industry sectors. It also experiments with using labour force survey data to assess the contributions of graduates in social sciences to different industries.
