Research training has strong links to national innovation environments and innovation policies practised in all countries. Directing substance learning, educating researchers in problems relevant to innovation policies and educating the workforce with skills needed by innovative industries can all be strongly affected by proper research training policies. Much of the actual innovation processes in countries are performed by research trainees, which provides research training policies a direct connection to innovation policies. Technology transfer from universities to industry commonly takes place in connection with research training. This report is based on key findings from the PhD study by Sandra Haukka from the RMIT University, Melbourne, Australia

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
