AN ASSESSMENT OF THE CONSTRAINTS TO UNIVERSITY - INDUSTRY COLLABORATION (UIC) IN NIGERIAN CONSTRUCTION SECTOR.



Background to the Study

  

According to Altbach (2013),Universities serve as academic institutions committed to the creation  and  dissemination  of  knowledge,  in  a  range  of  disciplines  and  fields,  and featuring  the  appropriate  laboratories,  libraries,  and  other  infrastructures  that  permit teaching  and  research  at  the  highest  possible  level.  In  other  words,  it  provides  a conducive environment for research and development, teaching and learning, where staffs and students will interact and compete effectively with their counterparts globally. 


The creation  of  reliable  and  public  knowledge  is  central  to  the  growth  of  construction organizations, leading to support from government and organizations for research to expand the pool  of  economically useful knowledge(Geuna, Steinmeuller, and Salter, 2003). According to Abeda (2010), in the developed countries such as USA some of the most   prestigious   universities   (e.g.Massachusetts   Institute   of   Technology)   were established more than one century ago to support close research relationships between university  and  industry.  In  some  other countries  such  as  Malaysia,  these  type  of universities are referred to as research universities. 


This research relationship however, is essential  in  contributing  to  the  technological  development  and  innovations  in  the industrial sector and enhancing its global competitive capability. The industry on the other  hand  should  be  responsible  in  collaborating  with  university  for  adoption  and practice of the new technological ideas generated by the University researchers. It should also be responsible in providing funds for and in most cases initiating these research operations.

 

However,  according  toSalter,  Bruneel,  and  D'Este,  (2009),  Collaboration  between industry  and  universities  faces  significant  challenges  including  the  fact  that  these organizations are driven by different incentive systems. 


Universities are driven primarily to create new knowledge,publish and educate, whereas private organizations are focused on capturing valuable knowledge that can be leveraged for competitive advantage,Dasgupta and David, (1994). They also claim that universities are becoming increasingly proactive managers of their collaborations with industry, seeking to create valuable Intellectual Property (IP) for themselves.  


Consequently, in  many developed countries, more and more interactions between universities and industry are becoming subject to measurement and management, leading to more formal, contractual exchanges based on codified rules and regulations. This is significantly altering the nature of the interactions between universities and industry, which in the past has relied largely on informal relations. Although both of these aspects have been acknowledged in literatures on university-industry (U-I) linkages, relatively few studies have investigated the nature of the barriers to Universities-Industry Collaboration (UIC),(Hall, Link and Scott, 2003).



Private firms often conflict with university researchers over the topic of research, timing and form of disclosure of research results. While researchers may be keen to disclose information  to  gain  priority,  firms  may  wish  to  keep  secret  or  appropriate  the information.


Brown and Duguid, (2000) asserted that Academics wish to create ‗leaky‘ knowledge so that their ideas will be acknowledged by their peers while firms want the knowledge to be ‗sticky‘ so that they can control a resource that is not accessible to their competitors.  University  researchers  are  also  likely to  select  research  topics  that  are perceived by their peers to be interesting and valuable, while firms are likely to select topics and problems that are perceived as being valuable for the development of new products  and  services  for  their  customers  (Nelson,  2004).  


However,  against  this background of frequent fall back on the age-old norms and roles of these two entities, in developing nations, there is presently an increasing international competition and rapid technological changes. Governments becoming more actively involved in encouraging collaborations  as  a  means  of  improving  innovation  efficiency  and  consequently enhancing increasing creation of wealth.


Tina, (2002)revealed  that  Collaboration  between  University  and  Industry  provides companies with the means by which to advance technologically, at lower cost and with less inherent risk. It also provides access to a greater breadth and depth of knowledge and technologies than would normally be possible through internal development as well as additional public and private funding, and increasingly, licensing and patenting income for universities as a result of technology transfer activities. 


On the other hand, these considerable potential benefits are often not realized in practice. The major reason is that collaborations  between these diverse organizations,  need  huge management effort  in order to be successful (Dodgson, 1991). 


Given the substantial investment (both public and private) currently being made in collaborative research activities in some of the developed nations, it  is clearly important  to  ensure that  collaborations are  managed effectively, and the benefit achieved maximized. According to Julio, Edward, Edward and  William  (2010),  Universities  can  be  major  resources  to  company‘s  innovation strategy.
