Strategies for the Universities to be Locally Engaged while Globally Visible
Ramakrishna, Seeram ;
Asian Journal of Innovation and Policy, volume 4, issue 3, 2015, Pages 271~287
DOI : 10.7545/ajip.2015.4.3.271
Universities are now operating in a post-globalized world. They need to be locally engaged while globally visible for continued success. Specific strategies include 1) unbundling education using fractal modules approach to facilitate more flexible and customized learning expectations of net generation of students; 2) open-source software and hardware platforms to facilitate collaborations around a short or multi-year, multidisciplinary brain stretching projects motivated by the real world challenges; 3) new courses on innovation and entrepreneurship to nurture experience seeking and enterprising mindset of students; 4) cross-border university- public- private partnerships for developing solutions specific to the local needs and can be scalable for the world; and 5) encouraging faculty members with glocal mindset.
Student Factors on Employment of Engineering Graduates: A Korean University Case
Park, Cheol Kyun ;
Asian Journal of Innovation and Policy, volume 4, issue 3, 2015, Pages 288~306
DOI : 10.7545/ajip.2015.4.288
This study analyzes the determinants on employment of 4-year college graduates. Data were collected from nine semesters from 2009 to 2014 totaling 4,176 engineering graduates of University ‘A’ in the capital area of Korea. Employment is analyzed on three levels reflecting the quality of employment such as total employment, preferred jobs and the top 500 companies. Eighteen variables were divided into four categories such as private attributes, curriculum activities, non-curriculum activities, and job preparation activities. The Hierarchical Logistic Regression Model was used. The results are as follows: top determinants included in each definition of employment are departments group, gender, employment program, and internship program. Also, grade points in major and basic courses were added as a result of curriculum activities. There is no statistical significance in household income, club activities and employment preparation activities. Also, the curriculum for major intensive courses and multi-majoring imposed by the university are not effective.
Use of Patent Anlysis for the Future Skills-needs in Information Security
Hwang, Gyu-hee ; Ju, In-Joong ; Ban, Ga-woon ; Lee, Kack-Hee ;
Asian Journal of Innovation and Policy, volume 4, issue 3, 2015, Pages 307~327
DOI : 10.7545/ajip.2015.4.3.307
This study attempts to develop a methodology that analyzes patent applications to identify future skills, in particular in the sector of information security, recently into the spotlight. Matching skill elements from the International Patent Classification (IPC) with skill units from job analysis, the study tries to track trends in the skills needs based on IPC time-pattern. It then verifies the validity of the outlook for future skills needs by addressing the situation through the use of patents. The research assesses the usability of patent information for this type of analysis. While this study is limited to the information security sector by using Korean patent information, it can be expanded in the future to other areas and patents in the United States and Europe.
Performance Effect of the Fits between Industrial Environment, Innovation Capacity and Innovation: Focusing on Innovation-Intensive Korean Firms
Lee, Seung-Hyun ; Park, Young-Il ; Kwon, Youngkwan ;
Asian Journal of Innovation and Policy, volume 4, issue 3, 2015, Pages 328~359
DOI : 10.7545/ajip.2015.4.3.328
To explain the performance gap between firms in the same industry, this study focuses on innovation. It provides a new framework using the dynamic-capability view based on empirical analysis of domestic businesses. The findings of this study are as follows: First, when the uncertainty and competition intensity in the business environment and the level of innovation have “fit”, it means that when the former goes up, so does the latter. In this regard, when the innovation capability of a firm is high, being “fit” means that the level of innovation is also high. When there was fitting innovation on industrial environment and innovation capacity, companies were able to achieve relatively high performance. Also, it was confirmed that instead of innovation for innovation capacity, innovation for industrial environment led to relatively higher performances of firms.
Innovation in Indian Industries: Insights from the First National Innovation Survey
Arora, Parveen ; Nath, Pradosh ;
Asian Journal of Innovation and Policy, volume 4, issue 3, 2015, Pages 360~380
DOI : 10.7545/ajip.2015.4.3.360
Technological innovations, as the key to building competitive advantage, need a comprehensive review to address the issues related to transformation of the Indian industries. The present paper reports the broad findings of the first National Innovation Survey undertaken by the Department of Science and Technology, Government of India. The findings presented here highlight the status of innovation related activities in different industrial sectors, its weaknesses, and areas requiring institutional interventions. The survey results underline the fact that the innovation activities in Indian industries are more for survival in a competitive market conditions than to create market advantage. A sort of disconnect between the innovation support system and the production system is a discernible fact that surfaces from the study. The study also indicates certain characteristics of the innovation behaviour of firms that brings out developing country issues of innovation.
An Empirical Analysis of Worldwide Cyberinfrastructure
Cho, Manhyung ;

Cyberinfrastructure is a research infrastructure that provides an environment in which research communities can get access to distributed resources and collaborate at unprecedented levels of computation, storage, and network capacity. The Worldwide LHC Computing Grid (WLCG) is a global collaborative project of computing or data centers that enables access to scientific data generated by the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) experiments at CERN. This case study analyzes the WLCG as a model of cyberinfrastructure in research collaboration. WLCG provides a useful case of how cyberinfrastructure can work in providing an infrastructure for collaborative researches under data-intensive paradigm. Cyberinfrastructure plays the critical role of facilitating collaboration of diverse and widely separated communities of researchers. Data-intensive science requires new strategies for research support and significant development of cyberinfrastructure. The sustainability of WLCG depends on the resources of partner organizations and virtual organizations at international levels, essential for research collaboration.

Nowadays, crowdfunding presents a promising development. This research focuses on the influence of platform strategy and market response on the success of crowdfunding from the perspective of the elaboration likelihood model (ELM) theory. Detailed product specifications, crowdfunding difficulty coefficient, vivid advertising video such as introduction and music, and recommendations from relevant figures are all used to depict platform strategy. Meanwhile, we use the number of lovers, followers, comments and 1 RMB backers to measure the level of market response. And thus, we model the impact of platform strategy and market response on crowdfunding success with empirical studies based on 400 samples of observed value. We found firstly that there exist significant positive relations between the total amount of funds pledged and detailed product specification, vivid advertising video, recommendations from relevant figures and the number of 1 RMB backers. Secondly, the crowdfunding difficulty of projects affects negatively, and significantly, the total amount of funds pledged. Thirdly, the influence of the number of lovers and followers on funds pledged is not significant.
