University-Industry Research Interactions is a compilation of papers focused on the examination of the mechanisms for cooperation between universities and industries. A section of the book covers the interfaces between industrial needs and university activities. The book provides some useful guides to increasing the effectiveness of using technical resources. Experiences of different countries and different industry sectors are also examined. The book discusses the use of university-industry interactions as a mechanism to increase the effectiveness of utilizing science and engineering. The articles contained in the book come from an international conference attended by some industrialized countries. The recommendations made in the book are intended to optimize the benefits from the use of technical resources. Another topic covered in the book is the means to enhance the collaboration between industries and universities. These collaborations are intended to be mutually beneficial between the two sectors. The text will be a useful tool for educators and economists.

In Canada, tax incentives for industrial research and development (R&D) have been a part of public policy for at least 50 years, with current policy having the rationale that economic growth and the role of technology in the process is contingent on Canada's own ability to discover new technologies. Modern forces of globalization have vastly increased the international flow of knowledge and have fundamentally redefined the relationship between innovation, product development, and economic growth. This implies that policy makers should re-examine the rational for, and the effectiveness of, the R&D tax incentives currently in place. This paper provides an overview of Canada's innovative and economic performance, examines current R&D tax incentives and their effectiveness in spurring technological innovation and economic growth, and offers new directions for R&D tax policy appropriate for Canada's place in the global economy. Special emphasis is given to the specific issues facing a small, open economy that is heavily reliant on foreign investment while seeing its most dynamic domestic industries forging strong investment and production links abroad.

Technology's contribution to economic growth and competitiveness has been the subject of vigorous debate in recent years. This book demonstrates the importance of a historical perspective in understanding the role of technological innovation in the economy. The authors examine key episodes and institutions in the development of the U.S. research system and in the development of the research systems of other industrial economies. They argue that the large potential contributions of economics to the understanding of technology and economic growth have been constrained by the narrow theoretical framework employed within neoclassical economies. A richer framework, they believe, will support a more fruitful dialogue among economists, policymakers, and managers on the organization of public and private institutions for innovation. David Mowery is Associate Professor of Business and Public Policy at the School of Business Administration, University of California, Berkeley. Nathan S. Rosenberg is Fairleigh Dickinson Professor of Economics at Stanford University. He is the author of Inside the Black Box: Technology and Economics (CUP, 1983).

Technological progress is a major factor chaping economic growth. Today's standard of living is a direct result of scientific advances and technical change in the past. Since uncontrolled technological progress has become amenace to our well being and may actually threat our survival, it is necessary to learn to manage technological progress and direct innovative activities in such a manner that both private wants and social needs playa dominant role in determining the rate and direction of technical change. This requires a better understanding of the processes of technical change, of their impact on and interrelationships with economic and social developments and of the means and measures by which both individuals and governments can influence and direct technological progress. To this end, the Ninistry for Research and Technology of the Federal Republ ic of Germany and the National Science Foundation of the Uni ted States of America invited a group of scholars, corporate managers and civil servants to a one week seminar on "Technolo gical Innovation". The seminar took place in April, 1976, in Bonn, Federal Republ ic of Germany. Most papers presented at this meeting were specifically prepared for the seminar. With this volume, they are made available to a larger audience to further stimulate discussion not only among scholars interested in innovation research and technology policy questions but also among managers, union officials, civil ser vants and others directly or indirectly concerned with and affected by technical change.

The great, complex and rapid change happening in fonner Soviet Union is overfloading an impressive impact on the western world, especially Europe, and, in the close future, on the global world. Most of this change is generating positive effects and even more optimistic expectations, but surely the difficulties to support and to render these results real and longlasting cannot be underestimated . In fact, difficulties in the adaptation, especially of the most important Countries capabilities, like R&D process and Innovation development and transfer, are being evidenced in the transitional period to completely new socio-economic and political conditions. For the above reasons various Conferences and Meetings have been organised on international base, most of them taking care of identifying and developing recommendations for improving organisation of Science in East Europe and reshaping the research in Science and Technology in the context of new socio-economic conditions. These efforts were mainly confined to scientific research that was considered one of the most important wealth's of Soviet Union, giving not specific attention to the strategic importance of Science and, even more, Innovation for industrial and socio-economic growth in the new N.I.S. Countries. Furthennore, the impressive speed of change in Innovation on the global market coupled to the enonnous change realised by N.I.S. Countries, especially by the leader Russia, is accelerating the need of an operating solution capable of linking these Countries with the Western World, rules and market, starting from Europe.
