Synopsis

Since the end of the Cold War, federal funding for research at American universities has sharply decreased, while changes in federal policy have combined with the emergence of new high-technology fields to make universities an attractive partner to private industry. In thirteen insightful and wide-ranging essays, Defining Values for Research and Technology examines the modern research university in the throes of this transition. While acknowledging the challenges of increased corporate funding, its contributors argue that university-industry partnerships have the potential to both benefit industrial expansion and enrich academic life.
