Article
‘Grand challenges’ are gaining visibility in the policy agenda of most Member States of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD). Diagnostic analysis, allowing identification of innovation systems problems and their causes, is needed in order to determine under what conditions public procurement of innovation (PPI) could co...
Article
Full-text available
We explore the challenges universities face when contributing to the development of an entrepreneurial ecosystem. The lack of efficiency of policies inspired by the traditional entrepreneurial university model, and the fact that students are more active than academic researchers in creating start-ups, lead to student start-up creation being part of...
Article
Full-text available
Agricultural research must contribute to address the diversity of challenges faced by agriculture in this century, and its societal impact should be assessed in this regard. The ASIRPA approach was developed to serve this objective. Based on the realization of a series of standardized case studies, the method offers an understanding of impact gener...
Article
Full-text available
In the literature, most of the authors agree that addressing “grand challenges” implies systems transformation and requires social, economic and technological changes. It involves new policy rationales and design and consequently new approaches of research impact assessment (RIA). The challenge is to develop methods able to improve our understandin...
Article
Full-text available
The production of scientific knowledge is expected to benefit society in a variety of ways. However, and despite the many theoretical models available in the literature, there are few practical frameworks for assessing the dimensions of the effect of research on society—including its political impacts. As part of the ASIRPA approach, in this paper...
Article
Full-text available
This paper focuses on how the evolving roles of a university and its Technology Transfer Office (TTO) are stimulating academic entrepreneurship in a non-mature entrepreneurial ecosystem. A more mature entrepreneurial ecosystem was built gradually by these actors through their progressive creation of innovation intermediaries and coordination among...
Article
This paper develops a renewed research impact assessment approach that goes beyond the traditional computation of internal rates of returns but allows collective learning, understanding and guiding systems transformation. Our approach (ASIRPA) builds on the broader research impact assessment literature which discusses impact-generating mechanisms i...
Article
Full-text available
This paper focuses on the role of universities and their Technology Transfer Offices (TTOs) in stimulating academic entrepreneurship. We contend that, in regional systems of innovation that are suffering from a lack of coordination between the various players involved in the process of start-up creation, universities need to evolve towards a role o...
Article
Full-text available
ASIRPA is an original and comprehensive approach for assessing the socio-economic impact of public-sector research organizations through case studies. The cases are theory-based, selected to characterize the diversity of the broader impacts, and standardized so as to allow the scaling-up of the analysis of impact to the level of the organization. A...
Article
This paper characterizes the various impact patterns generated by an agricultural public research organization (PRO), namely INRA (National Institute for Agronomic Research). We define an impact pattern as the combination of specific research outputs with specific actors that generates various types of impact. The analysis is based on information r...

Une approche multidimensionnelle de la mesure des effets de la recherche publique agronomique : le cas de l’INRA
Chapter
Full-text available
The literature on technology transfer offices (TTOs) focuses on the main variables explaining the performance of these organizations. The implicit strategic model considered by the literature is that the TTOs have to control all the activities, resources, competences of the value chain of the technology transfer process. The aim of the TTO is to ma...
Article
Inter-firms R&D collaborations are often seen as an effective mean to access new resources, to innovate and/or to enter new markets in a turbulent environment characterized by fierce competition. However, all R&D partnerships do not have the same strategic importance. We analyze the strategic features of two types of partnerships that are seldom co...
