(p.119) Chapter 6 Creating University-Industry Research Centers
Creating the Market University

Elizabeth Popp Berman

Princeton University Press

This chapter examines the development of a new market-logic practice in academic science, namely the creation of university–industry research centers. It begins by reviewing the origins of this practice, then tracks its early development as well as limits to its growth and spread. It then goes on to examine policy decisions that removed these limits and replaced them with incentives, and considers how political concern with the economic impact of innovation contributed to these decisions. The chapter concludes with a look at the subsequent takeoff of this practice, followed by a discussion of the conditions that appear to have been necessary for this takeoff to occur.

Keywords:   market logic, academic science, university–industry research centers, American universities, innovation
