The University Industry Innovation Network and IP Publishing Ltd. have agreed to promote each others activities in the area of University Industry Interaction, and Entrepreneurship and Innovation. In a personal meeting, Victoria Galan Muros (UIIN Director) and John Edmondson (Director at IP Publishing Ltd.) have expressed mutual interst in stimulating publications in the area of University-Industry Interaction. Recognising the need for both organisations and their activities, UIIN and IP Publishing will strive to support in each other in their activities.
With a lack of journals in this area, we (UIIN) are looking for stimulating the amount of publications and their impact on the overall area. We will offer individual journal memberships to our members, and promote and support special issues of the journals Entrepreneurship and Innovation and Industry & Higher Education. In addition UIIN will co-develop an annual special issue on University-Industry Interaction in the journal of Industry & Higher Education.
UIIN is proud to be able to support activities in this area, and is looking forward to a succesfull cooperation to drive the area interaction between university and industry.
