About this book

Research, Development, and Innovation in Asia Pacific Higher Education critically examines recent policies and practices adopted by governments and universities in Asia Pacific in promoting research and development, innovation, and entrepreneurial activities between the universities, industry and business. Critical reflections upon the changing relationship among these stakeholders are offered, with comparative perspectives and international insights into how universities in Asia Pacific have handled the growing pressure for top university rankings and keen competition in the knowledge-based economy.

Reviews

"Innovation, in both education and research, is one of the most important items on national and regional agendas, and a critical challenge for higher education systems in Asia and the Pacific. This is particularly true in the rapidly changing environment surrounding universities today, an environment characterized by significant economic growth and social development. Contributed by leading scholars of Asian higher education, chapters in this clearly and brilliantly written book outline the ways in which innovation and contestation have taken place inside universities as well as between universities and their larger societies." - Yuto Kitamura, Associate Professor of Education, The University of Tokyo, Japan
