Investigação e valor

Para refletir sobre o significado de "valor": valor de que natureza? Para quem? Para quê? Durante quanto tempo? Com que recursos? A que custo?

Valorisation is at the centre of many debates on the future of academic research. But valorisation has largely become narrowly understood in terms of universities’ economic contributions through patenting, licensing, spin-off formation and technology transfer. This emergent restrictive definition of universities’ societal impacts is a worrying development, overlooking the potential of universities’ knowledge in the Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences.
