Example text

A common arrangement on the European continent is that universities receive block grants that cover both teaching and research, often with little opportunity for released time from teaching. A younger faculty person who has done, and is doing, no research whatever is, in many situations, treated no differently than a highly productive colleague. Tenure, moreover, is likely to come early. The incentives to encourage research are weak, especially for faculty who do not aspire to professorial status.

14 With respect to industrial research, it is important that the activities of industrial research labs not be judged by academic criteria. 15 The role of industrial scientists and engineers is to improve the performance and reliability of those technologies and to reduce costs, as well as to invent entirely new technologies. Thus, the industrial research lab has had the effect of subjecting science to commercial criteria. In so doing it has rendered science more and more an endogenous activity, whose directions are increasingly shaped by economic forces and concentrated on the achievement of economic goals.

The essential point about American state universities is not only that there are so many of them, but that all public universities are also in competition with private universities, as well as with other public universities. Thus, in contrast to the civil service mode, there have been multiple sources of experimentation, decision making, innovation and, not least, alternative opportunities for academic employment. An especially critical way in which American universities have competed is by the frequent introduction of new material into the curriculum—so that the content of courses remains up-to-date in ways that, among other things, may be expected to confer advantages in the labor market upon their graduates.
