Sigl, Lisa; Leišyte, Liudvika – Minerva: A Review of Science, Learning and Policy, 2018
The ways in which societies and institutions institutionalize and practice invention management reflects not only how new ideas are valued, but also imaginaries about the role of science and technology for societal development. Often taking the US Bayh-Dole-Act as a model, many European states have recently implemented changes in how inventions at…

Woodson, Thomas S.; Harsh, Matthew; Foley, Rider – Minerva: A Review of Science, Learning and Policy, 2018
Science, Technology & Society (STS) graduate programs primarily train graduate students to work in tenure track academic jobs. However, there are not enough tenure track academic jobs to match the supply of STS graduate students, nor does every STS graduate student want to become an academic. As a start to addressing these challenges, we…

Miettinen, Reijo; Tuunainen, Juha; Esko, Terhi – Minerva: A Review of Science, Learning and Policy, 2015
Because of the gross difficulties in measuring the societal impact of academic research, qualitative approaches have been developed in the last decade mostly based on forms of interaction between university and other societal stakeholders. In this paper, we suggest a framework for qualitative analysis based on the distinction between three…

Aronova, Elena – Minerva: A Review of Science, Learning and Policy, 2012
The Congress for Cultural Freedom is remembered as a paramount example of the "cultural cold wars."
