Taking the long view: universities and their unique research

Interesting article - Taking the long view: universities and their unique research role by Michael J. Biercuk in The Conversation 11 February 2015, 3.28pm AEDT.

The Minister for Industry (and recently for Science), Ian Macfarlane, has said the government “expects” universities and research organisations to be “open for business” and do more on inventing, patenting and commercialising research.

But is this really a good idea? Is it good policy to ask – and even offer incentives for – university researchers to work on problems posed by or of primary interest to commercial entities?

Now, here, you see, it takes all the running you can do, to keep in the same place.
