The focus of this study is to discover what, within the framework of its overall science and technology programs, is each country's basic approach to fostering both 1) higher education industry linkage and collaboration with respect to research and development, and 2) technology transfer to enhance innovation and entrepreneurship. This report describes and assesses the approach of the two countries studied, and it derives some implications that would be relevant to the attempts of American states, including Kansas, to design and implement similar mechanisms themselves.
