Abstract

The relationship between universities/higher education institutions and industry have begun to attract an increasing amount of interest over the past decades. There is an increasing body of literature concerning the links, especially within the fields of science, technology and innovation studies as well as higher education studies, dealing with various aspects of the theory and practice of university-industry links. This increasing body of literature on this subject is illustrated in an annotated bibliography by Salisbury (1993), Packer (1994), Stewart (1999) and more recently by Mora- Valentin (2002). Researchers investigate the issue either at macro/ national level (for example, Polt et al., 2001a, 2001b; OECD, 2002) or organisational level (Geisler and Rubenstein, 1989; Bonaccorsi and Piccaluga, 1994, Siegel et al., 2004); whilst some focus on certain types of linkages or industrial/technological sectors (Faulkner and Senker, 1994; Loebinger, 2003). Previous studies, however, appear to be predominantly based on the experience of developed and industrialised economies, particularly the United States (US), the United Kingdom (UK) and other OECD countries where universityindustry links are more prevalent. Only a few studies were based on the experience of developing countries. Nevertheless, anecdotal evidence shows that developing countries are gradually following the trend of developed countries in promoting university-industry links (Martin, 2000). It is perhaps fair to say that many potentially important research questions remain open, in the context of developing countries like Malaysia. Our ongoing research agenda thus look at the following research question; “What is the nature of university-industry links in Malaysia?”.
