The 2nd International Workshop on Global, Sustainable Innovation, held at InnoLab, University of Vaasa on 22-23 May 2023, brought together experts from around the world together with our CIMR Directors and members, to discuss the drivers of sustainable innovation and the role of universities.
This paper tracks the flows of university venture capital (UVC) around the world. The United States is at the top of the list, with the UK, Canada, and Japan also being in the top tier.
In their study, Abhijit Sengupta and Federica Rossi examine how changes in the composition of universities’ funding sources affect how universities engage with non-academic stakeholders: what activities they engage in, and who they engage with.
Dean Jo-Ann Rolle, Professor Thomas Cooney and Associate Professor Nigel Coates joined chairs Jacqueline Winstanley FRSA and David Walsh for a debate on higher education’s future role in inclusive innovation.
In advance of our ‘Endless Possibilities’ debate, we asked Jacqueline Winstanley, FRSA our Visiting Fellow and Co-chair of our debate, to set the scene as we explore the impact of the pandemic on the Inclusive Entrepreneur Network which she founded. The APPG and her view on the new hybrid ways of working within inclusive entrepreneurship particularly in relation to working with universities.
In a recent report, Dr Federica Rossi, in collaboration with NCACE, has carried out an exploratory analysis of impact case studies submitted to the Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2014, with the objective to identify the key actors and processes involved in the generation of arts and culture-related impact.
We are delighted to introduce the first Debate of the Summer term: “Endless Possibilities: What roles will universities play in new hybrid ways of creating inclusive entrepreneurship?”
The eight papers selected for the Special Issue we have guest edited for the International Journal of Intellectual Property Management (Vol. 12, N. 1) contribute to filling three key gaps in the academic and policy discourse on universities’ contribution to sustainable development through third mission engagement.
The TRansforming Institutions by Gendering contents and Gaining Equality in Research (TRIGGER) was a project to understand the underrepresentation of women in Science, Technology, Engineering, Maths and Medicine (STEMM) subjects in academia, and the institutional changes needed.
TRIGGER was an applied five-country research project funded by the European Union which ran from 2014 to 2017, to research and address the nature and causes of underlying gender inequality in STEMM fields. The TRIGGER project’s final report, detailing the extensive achievements of the project, is now available to download.
