Proceedings of the 2021 University-Industry Interaction Conference
In a year of unprecedented challenges and transformations, the 2021 University-Industry Interaction Conference emerged as a beacon of innovation and resilience. Our second online conference featured 9 papers, bringing together academia and industry to explore the evolving dynamics of knowledge exchange and collaboration.
As we navigate the digital landscape, we present a collection of insights that push the boundaries of traditional measures. From evaluating collaborative initiatives to measuring the human element in cluster evaluation, we delve into the intricacies of fostering exchange at eye level. We explore multi-stakeholder service models, impact assessment frameworks for research and technology organizations, and the skill sets needed for university-industry collaboration champions.
The papers in this collection delve into topics such as sustainable entrepreneurship, understanding entrepreneurship as a theoretical concept, and identifying barriers to transdisciplinary cooperation in the Third Mission. Additionally, we embark on a journey towards reinventing higher education and regional ecosystems of entrepreneurial education.
As you immerse yourself in these proceedings, we extend our sincere gratitude to the authors, reviewers, and participants who contributed to this enriching dialogue.
