Technology transfer and the Australian construction industry: Exploring the relationship between public-sector research providers and research users

Manley, Karen, Marceau, Jane, & Hampson, Keith D. (2001) Technology transfer and the Australian construction industry: Exploring the relationship between public-sector research providers and research users. Journal of Scientific and Industrial Research, 60, pp. 919-928.

Abstract

This paper investigates the nature of construction-related R&D (research and development) programs undertaken by public-sector organisations in Australia, and the linkages between those organisations and the construction industry. It is found that robust linkages do exist between the research providers and the industry. These linkages improve the relevance of R&D programs to industry needs. Nevertheless, research providers were found to be generally unhappy about the level of industry funding of R&D. The paper highlights the value of linkages between research providers and research users in the construction industry.

Impact and interest:

Citation countsare 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.
