PPP Seminar: ‘Bridging the Gap between Academic Research and Industry Research Needs’

Presenter: Professor Bruce Prideaux

The aim of this seminar is to examine mechanisms for bridging the gap between academic research and the research needs of industry. Researchers often call on industry and the public for help in data collection but rarely feed results back in a form that is able to be understood by the public and industry.

The pressures of promotion and peer review, the current rewards systems for research output and other university related agendas often see research results limited solely to the academic literature. Results captured in this form of publications are often not accessible to the public and in many cases are so infused with the jargon of academic speak that non-academic readers have difficulty distilling results.
