Call for Papers

This Special Issue aims to investigate changes in the production of academic knowledge in Science, Technology, and the Humanities. The main objective is to extend the analysis of the internal organization of the university, and also will consider both traditional and new organizational structures. The way universities are spreading academic knowledge through the communication between departments, research centers, research laboratories, and interdisciplinary units to industry and government. Also, this special issue will consider the new roles of Technology Transfer offices, Business Incubators, Science Parks, and Grant Management Unit in connecting academic knowledge to industry.  We also approach the topic from the perspective of alternative models for research and innovation like technological consulting, the transition to an entrepreneurial university including innovation, entrepreneurship, and contribution to regional development in its remit. We will present real cases of university research laboratories and industry interaction for innovation. The authors will present how the autonomy, heterogeneity, creativity, and leadership of research groups and research laboratories can influence to bring knowledge and technology from university to industry.

  1. This article collection aims to address these broad questions, addressing the following topics:
  2. a) The Internal organization of academic knowledge and science
  3. b) Interdisciplinary organization center above the university, and
  4. c) Hybrid new institutions


We would like to invite you to address these issues, keeping in mind that an ideal article combines theoretical, empirical and policy elements, although the balance may differ.
