Abstract

With the economic crises, the thinking about the role of universities in industrial and other innovation processes has shifted from innovation to drive global competitiveness, to how shrinking resources can be mobilised to address growing inequality, poverty and unemployment. Glenda Kruss reports on a major new study underway on how universities may contribute to innovation for inclusive development.
