Workshop: Redefining knowledge interfaces in health care

Friday, 21 February 2014 -
10:30 to 16:00

There is an increased awareness that the success of innovation in healthcare is hindered by the fragmentation of various types of knowledge across organisations and communities. As a consequence, there have been numerous initiatives to develop spaces where different communities engaged in healthcare can interact and share knowledge with the explicit goal of fostering medical innovation. These are often labelled “translational research” initiatives, and they are expected to result in an improvement of the interfaces among the diverse disciplines and professions involved in healthcare.

Workshop: Spanning the Co-authorship and Co-invention Networks: A Study of Publishing Inventors in Nanotechnology

Wednesday, 23 January 2013 - 12:00
Using a social network lens, we look at collaboration networks between authors and inventors. Specifically, we study how the presence of publishing inventors in an R&D team affects the quality of the inventions to which they contribute. We analyze the characteristics of publishing inventors by identifying those who span the same or distinct groups in the co-authorship network and thereby provide access to more or less redundant knowledge.

Seminar about Sustainable Construction and Innovation

Tuesday, 2 November 2010 - 09:00
In recent decades an international building system has emerged through the central cities in both industrialized and developing countries. This system includes materials and components that overlap and work simultaneously with regional and local practices. The interaction between innovations developed at different international and local perspectives on building systems could explain how a variety of sustainable construction techniques have emerged in different locations.

Third Mission approaches and indicators: The way forward

Monday, 10 November 2008 - 09:00
As a concept the “third mission” of the university is barely a decade old. It has however become rapidly popular to refer to a further goal to add to the universities traditional teaching and research missions: the perceived need to engage with societal demands and link the university with its socio-economic context. Today governments develop third mission policies, allocate funding streams to its development (the so-called “third stream”), policy-makers and experts are developing indicator systems, and academics lively debate how to integrate the three missions within a coherent university strategy and whether the pursuit of one mission may be detrimental to the others. Yet, despite its success as a concept, it remains a contested one, mainly because of two reasons.
