  • An in-depth study of direct and indirect impacts from the research of a
           physics professor
    • Authors: Perez Vico; E.
      Pages: 701 - 719
      Abstract: Some policymakers believe that academic R&D generates insufficient economic benefits. However, they often exclude the long-term and multi-dimensional impacts that are mediated through the activities of companies, students or policymakers. This case study, which is mainly interview-based, traces and characterises such impacts applying the technological innovation systems approach to the case of a physics professor. Multi-dimensional impacts are revealed in the areas of catalysis, biomaterials and research policy. Impacts on the development, social capital and search processes are continuous and cumulative, while impacts on resource mobilisation and legitimation follow upon these. Entrepreneurial experimentation and market formation are impacted in later stages, sometimes with decade-long time lags. The impact is often subtle, deeply intertwined with the action of others, and it unfolds in sequences of impact. Implications are drawn for research policy, emphasising the importance of accounting for indirect impacts in order to understand the full effect of academic R&D.

  • Moving from monodisciplinarity towards transdisciplinarity: Insights into
           the barriers and facilitators that scientists faced
    • Authors: Benard, M; de Cock-Buning, T.
      Pages: 720 - 733
      Abstract: Transdisciplinary research aims to integrate scientific knowledge and societal perspectives. Although transdisciplinarity increasingly plays a role in science, practical implications remain largely unreported in literature. A dialogue is common strategy in this type of research to stimulate mutual learning between scientists and societal stakeholders. This paper presents a four-year dialogue, using tailor-made interventions, between scientists in an interdisciplinary animal welfare research program and societal stakeholders. The dialogue aimed to encourage the scientists to move from a monodisciplinary approach to a more transdisciplinary one. Three learning phases were identified and described along with elements that worked as either barriers or facilitators of learning. We argue that this learning process can be shortened by starting with team building and the design of a shared research project after which individual experiments can be planned. Additional practical strategies are discussed.

  • Network analysis to evaluate cross-disciplinary research collaborations:
           The Human Sensing Research Center, Korea
    • Authors: Yang, C. H; Heo, J.
      Pages: 734 - 749
      Abstract: Government-funded research collaborations have received increased attention in science and engineering policies. Public support programs designed to encourage group research efforts by university research centers may have direct/indirect effects on the way they build cross-disciplinary linkages and research collaboration networks. We present empirical evidence on how the group research support program affects the formation of research collaboration networks. This study utilized a method of network analysis as an evaluation tool to address whether the Science/Engineering Research Center program, the first government-sponsored university research center program in Korea, has been successful in forming research collaboration networks that promote cross-disciplinary group research activities. The results shows that the research collaboration networks are implemented by the group research support program as intended. They lead to relational dynamics which promote dissemination of knowledge across a broad range of research fields and combine research activities related to the different science and engineering capabilities and expertise.

  • Enabling work? Family-friendly policies and academic productivity for
           men and women scientists
    • Authors: Feeney, M. K; Bernal, M, Bowman, L.
      Pages: 750 - 764
      Abstract: Universities throughout the USA have adopted family-friendly policies to enable life and career balance and to encourage the attraction and retention of women scientists. Although family-leave policies are designed to provide job protection for parents and ensure that faculty can remain productive scholars, it is unclear whether or not formal family-leave policies have played a positive role in areas of academic productivity such as publishing and teaching. This research investigates the relationships between university family-leave policies and productivity among faculty in six fields of science using responses from a national survey of 1,598 faculty at 150 research universities and data from status of women reports and faculty handbooks. The hierarchical multi-level analysis indicates that generous formal family-leave policies, on-site childcare, and spousal hiring policies differently affect the productivity of women and men academic scientists.

  • Twenty five years of private wheat breeding in the UK: Lessons for other
    • Authors: Galushko, V; Gray, R.
      Pages: 765 - 779
      Abstract: Crop research sectors in many countries are facing reduced public support with public breeding programs being gradually replaced by private ones. This paper explores the UK experience with the privatization of wheat breeding that began in 1987. The analysis presented in this paper is based on interviews with sixteen experts currently involved in wheat research breeding in the UK. Taking a snapshot of UK wheat research today, it would be easy to conclude that the UK sector made a smooth transition from public to private breeding. However, this is not the case. The UK faced many challenges in establishing an integrated wheat innovation system and has only recently developed policies and funding processes that have enabled upstream public scientists to work with private wheat breeding industry. As policy makers around the world contemplate the privatization of crop breeding, important lessons can be drawn from the UK crop research funding model.

  • Varieties of research coordination: A comparative analysis of two
           strategic research consortia
    • Authors: Wardenaar, T; de Jong, S. P. L, Hessels, L. K.
      Pages: 780 - 792
      Abstract: Strategic research consortia as policy instruments for research coordination have been on the rise for more than a decade. Despite their rising popularity as coordination structures, there has been little comparative analysis of the actual coordination approaches such consortia develop. In order to enhance our understanding of consortia as coordination structures, this paper makes a systematic and in-depth comparison of the coordination approaches of two Dutch consortia. The analysis shows that research consortia coordinate their activities in very different ways. A consortium’s coordination approach turns out to be strongly influenced by its internal characteristics. The observed influence of internal consortium characteristics implies that the eventual coordination approach of consortia will not always match the rationale behind a policy measure to support these consortia. We recommend policy-makers to foster strategic research consortia with a heterogeneous composition that have organised sufficient flexibility for reacting to unforeseen developments.

  • Can R&D be identified and measured in services? Empirical evidence
           from university hospitals
    • Authors: Teixeira Bohrer, C; Raupp de Vargas, E.
      Pages: 793 - 808
      Abstract: This paper proposes an in-depth analysis of some of the constraints on case studies conducted at French university hospital services, aiming to better understand R&D in their services. We begin with an analysis of the intangibility of inputs (knowledge and information) and outputs that confirms the difficulty in recognizing innovations based on the social sciences and humanities. This empirical study verified that there was a diversity of actors who contributed to the generation and increase of the stock of knowledge. Concerning R&D funding, it is noted that R&D in services is not always planned in terms of a formal project. Finally, one could argue that advances in research allow the recognition of different relationships at the same time as the boundaries of R&D in services are expanded, allowing a better measurement of its results.

  • Research agendas involving patients: Factors that facilitate or impede
           translation of patients' perspectives in programming and implementation
    • Authors: Pittens, C. A. C. M; Elberse, J. E, Visse, M, Abma, T. A, Broerse, J. E. W.
      Pages: 809 - 820
      Abstract: Patients are increasingly involved in agenda setting in health research policy, but little is known about whether or not patients’ topics are translated into a funding programme and taken up by researchers. A qualitative evaluation of nine multi-stakeholder agenda-setting projects in the Netherlands was conducted. Document study and 54 semi-structured interviews with stakeholders were undertaken. Three strategies for the translation of research agendas into research programmes were identified: first, one-on-one translation; second, agendas were used to adapt general policies; and third, no translation. A number of factors, facilitating or impeding this translation, were identified, relating to the context or the process of programming and implementation. Context appeared to be crucial: positive attitudes towards patient involvement, good relations between stakeholders and supportive characteristics of organizations. Patient involvement was rarely sustained during programming and implementation. These insights contribute to more effective procedures for programming and implementing research agendas.

  • Predictors of attitudes toward carbon capture and storage using data on
           world views and CCS-specific attitudes
    • Authors: Warren, D. C; Carley, S. R, Krause, R. M, Rupp, J. A, Graham, J. D.
      Pages: 821 - 834
      Abstract: Despite the potential environmental and economic benefits of carbon capture and storage (CCS), many factors limit its prospects for implementation, including economic feasibility, geologic and legal constraints, risk uncertainties, and public acceptance. This study focuses on the challenge of public acceptance and support by analyzing survey data on publis attitudes toward CCS implementation in the coal-intensive state of Indiana. It was determined that specific information that defined individuals’ general world views can be used to predict support or opposition for CCS implementation. However, additional analysis found that specific attitudes about potential CCS risks and benefits are also significantly correlated with support or opposition to CCS implementation. These variables include: the respondents’ impressions of the potential dangers associated with CCS; attitudes about the potential for CCS implementation to bring jobs to the local economy; and the amount of fear of a CCS facility near their home or community.
