Final Report - PROKNOW (Production of Knowledge Revisited. The Impact of Academic Spin-Offs on public research performance in Europe)

Project ID: 28577
Funded under: FP6-CITIZENS


This is the final report of the PROKNOW project, which aimed generally at re-conceptualising science-industry relations along the 'interactive model'. PROKNOW has brought the 'interactive model' to an area of research and policy which has been largely dominated by the 'linear model'.

The document refers to current theories that relate to the European market and states the motivation for an alternative approach on analysing science-industry relations. It later describes the methods used by the project and analyses specific relations, before reaching conclusions and recommendations. Having following unconventional research methods, the research team believes that its findings on science-industry relations can provide a better understanding of this complex matter and offer a more productive environment based on the project's recommendations.
