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.
