Praise for Developing University-Industry Relations"This timely book is an excellent read and a very useful guide for those who work in the increasingly important area of the interface between universities and industry. It is a highly recommended collection of articles from several of the most significant programs in the U.S. and outlines the principles and operations which have made these programs successful."-John B. Simpson, president, University at Buffalo?"I was privileged to serve as Computer Science and Engineering department chair at the University of Washington during the 1990s, when Bob Miller, Gerry Barnett, Pat Jones, and Chuck Williams developed what was widely regarded as one of the most innovative and successful software tech transfer practices in the nation. This must-read book is chock-full of insights from individuals with vast experience."-Ed Lazowska, Bill & Melinda Gates Chair in Computer Science and Engineering, University of Washington?"I read the whole book in one sitting on an airplane flight, and it is great! This is truly a useful primer for research administrators and many others in university administration. I couldn't wait to land and e-mail our management group to read this gem. I will come back to it often to help me explain, manage, and advocate for smart ways to build business-university relations."-Andrew C. Comrie, associate vice president for research and dean of the Graduate College, University of Arizona?"This book is a must-read with high heuristic value for university administrators wanting to augment university-industry relations. The chapters reveal the personal successes of practitioners at the cutting edge of this arcane business and how they were successful in developing and managing these relationships."-MRC Greenwood, chancellor emerita, University of California, Santa Cruz
