  • The impacts of public policies on private R&D investment in
           Taiwan's national science parks
    • Authors: Shu-Chin Huang, Jen-Jen Lin
      Pages: 1 - 28
      Abstract: As more and more companies engage in overseas investment, there is a need for reviewing current policies to promote domestic R&D investment. This paper investigates the impacts of government policies, demand, R&D entrepreneurship, internal Scientific and Technological (S&T) knowledge, local environment and financial opportunities on private firms' R&D investment decisions. Using Taiwan's national science parks for the study, we find that demand incentives and R&D entrepreneurship are the most decisive factors, while firms' internal S&T knowledge, local research infrastructure, financial opportunities from stock markets and R&D tax credits are also influential factors in determining R&D investment. Different from previous studies focusing on R&D grants and subsidies, this research finds that the two measures are relevant but their effects are less important than the other factors stated above. The policy implication is that a modification of current technology policies is needed to incorporate the important determinants into policy designs to promote domestic R&D investment.

  • The non-linear influences of social capital on knowledge transfer in
           international alliances: an analysis using multivariate adaptive
           regression splines
    • Authors: Yi-Chih Lee, Wei-Li Wu
      Pages: 29 - 43
      Abstract: This study applied multivariate adaptive regression splines (MARS) to explore the nonlinear relationships between social capital and knowledge transfer in international alliances. Using the social capital theory, several attributes were identified for the different dimensions of social capital between alliance partners, and the relationships between these attributes and knowledge transfer in international alliances were explored. Samples of 172 Taiwan-based international alliances were used for the empirical test. This study revealed that an instant communication system, an attribute of the structural dimension of social capital, has a nonlinear negative influence on knowledge transfer. Relational capital, an attribute of the relational dimension of social capital, has nonlinear and positive influences on knowledge transfer. Cooperation and competition relationships, attributes of the cognitive dimension of social capital, both have nonlinear and positive influences on knowledge transfer.

  • Assessing the business performance measurements for transfusion of TQM and
           TPM initiatives in the Indian manufacturing industry
    • Authors: Kanwarpreet Singh, I.P.S. Ahuja
      Pages: 44 - 82
      Abstract: Traditionally, quality and maintenance functions in industries were viewed as just a support function of a business. Improving quality of product being produced was not even cared and managing equipment performance was not a top priority. The inadequacies of the quality as well as maintenance practices in the past have adversely affected organisational competitiveness. The present research is aimed at developing an insight into the prevalent quality maintenance practices adopted in the contemporary Indian manufacturing industry. As the leading Indian manufacturing organisations have taken proactive initiatives to effectively improve the manufacturing by transfusing various lean manufacturing philosophies like TQM, TPM, 5S, Six Sigma, etc. for realising enhanced manufacturing performance. The study reveals that Indian entrepreneurs have been reasonably successful in improving the business performances in the organisations by implementing combination of TQM and TPM, as TQM support to TPM is much effective and this improvement initiative have significantly contributed towards enhancing the overall manufacturing performance.

  • From indicators to policy: issues from the Nigerian research and
           experimental development survey
    • Authors: W.O. Siyanbola, A.D. Adeyeye, A.A. Egbetokun, M. Sanni, O.B. Oluwatope
      Pages: 83 - 98
      Abstract: Taking the pioneer efforts made in Nigeria as a case, this paper discusses the challenges associated with undertaking R&D surveys in a developing country. The 2006/2007 survey of R&D activities in Nigeria was carried out in both the higher education and government sectors, using the Frascati Manual as guide. In all, 75 universities and 62 research institutes were surveyed with an overall response rate of 73.8%. Among several, the adaptation of definitions and methodologies prescribed in the Manual - designed with developed economies in mind - was a major challenge. We conclude that for R&D indicators to become more relevant for economic policy in developing countries survey methods and indicators should be adapted or new ones developed to reflect the local realities of STI systems. Agriculture, informal economy and indigenous knowledge are three important aspects of African system that S&T indicators, to date, do not cover.

  • HIV/AIDS behavioural challenges in Lagos state schools: an
           empirical study
    • Authors: Waliu Apena, Rajeev K. Bali, Jackie Binnersley, Raouf N.G. Naguib, Michael O. Odetayo, Vikraman Baskaran
      Pages: 99 - 109
      Abstract: This paper evaluates the extent of the behavioural challenges concerning HIV/AIDS among senior secondary school and tertiary institution students in Lagos, Nigeria. The study was carried out in collaboration with the Lagos State Ministry of Education. Questionnaires (n = 958 copies) were administered to selected senior secondary schools in the Lagos State administrative divisions (urban and rural) and the Lagos State University (LASU). The study aimed to record information about students' behaviour related to HIV/AIDS as this would provide information relating to the factors responsible for its transmission. The results show that the behaviour of the respondents with regard to HIV/AIDS puts them at risk of contracting the virus. We conclude by suggesting the use of Knowledge Management (KM) techniques as an appropriate modern approach to tackling the problem and the availability of Behavioural Change Communication (BCC) materials in all Lagos State schools should be increased.
