CAIRO BOOKS's Description
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.
