This volume analyzes the impact of public policy on the knowledge economies and higher education systems of Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) countries, including Australia, Canada, Japan, Finland, Germany, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, and the United States, as well as the overall European Union.

Given that innovation is a national economy’s most valuable asset in today’s global marketplace, countries are investing more than ever in academic research, doctoral education, and the process of knowledge transfer. Policymakers now perceive the academic enterprise as a means of sustaining international competitiveness, and newly implemented national innovation policies represent a marked shift away from traditional science and technology policies.

The contributors examine this new relationship between higher education and national systems of innovation, posing important questions: How is public policy affecting academic research? How are postsecondary institutions responding? The book concludes with a careful assessment of the effectiveness of current national innovation policy on higher education systems.

Bolstered by the latest economic research on higher education, this book will be read by researchers and policymakers worldwide.

Review:

"A solid reference work for those interested in governmental policies in certain developed countries concerning universities, research, and technology transfer."

(Eugene P. Trani Journal of Higher Education)

"This book makes a valuable contribution to the comparative study of research and higher education policies in the 'innovation era'... Experts on the topic, policy analysts, and graduate students are all likely to regard this volume as a very useful source for years to come."

(Creso M. Sá American Journal of Education)
