Marina Dabic Managing University Resources

  1. 1. <ul><li>Managing University Resources: Increasing and Diversifying Financial Resources and Developing Public Private Partnerships </li></ul><ul><li>Marina Dabic </li></ul><ul><li>University of Zagreb </li></ul><ul><li>Faculty of Economics and Business </li></ul><ul><li>[email_address] </li></ul>
  2. 3. <ul><li>Overview of the presentation </li></ul><ul><li>University Funding Case of Croatia </li></ul><ul><li>Initial Findings: A Study in Diversity </li></ul><ul><li>Implementing change in the face of diversity: No common starting points in countries that we took in consideration </li></ul><ul><li>Facing the cost of change: Differing levels of support </li></ul><ul><li>Requirements for change </li></ul><ul><li>Working groups aims </li></ul>
  4. 5. Our objectives is to find answers to listed questions <ul><li>What’s right </li></ul><ul><li>What’s wrong </li></ul><ul><li>What is important </li></ul><ul><li>Are we going forward or backward </li></ul><ul><li>What’s needed to be done </li></ul><ul><li>A new approach </li></ul>
  5. 6. <ul><li>What ‘we’ need to see </li></ul><ul><li>A perfect match to declared objectives </li></ul><ul><li>Opportunity for positive association </li></ul><ul><li>The level of the posibiliy of goal achievement </li></ul><ul><li>A demonstrable awareness of what we are all about </li></ul>
  6. 7. <ul><li>It is what we asked for </li></ul><ul><li>• A clear problem </li></ul><ul><li>• A fresh approach </li></ul><ul><li>• Something no-one has done before </li></ul><ul><li>• Something that will make a difference </li></ul><ul><li>• Something that will transfer </li></ul><ul><li>Contribute to the funding debate from an institutional </li></ul><ul><li>Perspective </li></ul><ul><li>Provide examples of good practice in financial resources and full public private partnership </li></ul><ul><li>Identify the relationship between funding/costing and </li></ul><ul><li>autonomy, governance and accountability .

  7. 8. D rivers of Change <ul><li>Shifts emphasis –fr om funding to resource and activities </li></ul><ul><li>Global monitoring of university resources </li></ul><ul><li>Innovative creation of solution concepts to exploit technology </li></ul><ul><li>Funding of technology creation only in very special cases or that should be applicable to all </li></ul>
  8. 10. Integrated Research Programmes for Scale of Impact Increase probability of impact by alignment behind common goals: • Stakeholders, Funding, People, skills/capabilities, disciplines • Weight of effort and skills spectrum to match problem • Clarity of direction for all stakeholders towards exploitation • Spin-off disruptive technologies within relevance envelope • Greater potential for the scale of impact
  9. 11. University Funding: Approaching a crossroads University Competence set Model of Financing Matching performance management systems
  10. 12. <ul><li>GROUP WORK TASK </li></ul><ul><li>Duration 30 minutes </li></ul><ul><li>Analyse the chosen universities from your respective countries by applying four elements of SWOT analysis. </li></ul><ul><li>Please write down the results on a piece of paper.

  19. 21. The H E Roadmap Three Questions #1 What are today’s most pressing scientific challenges? #2 What are the road blocks to progress and finacial growth ? #3 What efforts bridge H E as a whole?
  20. 22. Three Major T opics # # 1 Enrollment growth and graduate enrollment “ Networks and pathways” #2 Research teams of the future “ Interdisciplinary” “ Public private partnerships” #3 Re-engineering the university's financial sources “ University's Research networks“ “ Community research”
  21. 23. <ul><li>Wh ich universities have produced success to-date? </li></ul>
  22. 24. <ul><li>What Are Your Universities Primary Needs Regarding The Universites Resources ? </li></ul>
  23. 25. <ul><li>In Addition To Financial Targets, What Other Metrics Might You Consider? </li></ul>
  24. 26. Non profit or profit making institutions 1 5 3 2 4 The Legislative framework 1 5 3 2 4 -Science and Research 1 5 3 2 4 1 5 3 2 4 On Track Warning Off Track On target Excellent Innovation Public Perception 1 5 3 2 4 Trend 01Q1 01Q2 01Q3 01Q4 Financing from the National Budget and own revenue 1 5 3 2 4
  25. 27. How does the co-operation work? <ul><li>Matching business needs with applied research potential of the University </li></ul><ul><li>Applying for additional resources to finance joint projects </li></ul><ul><li>Coordinating the protection and marketing of University's intellectual property </li></ul><ul><li>Informing on innovation and entrepreneurship </li></ul>
  26. 28. <ul><li>Do you have r egulations of the University on the protection of intellectual property rights and the handling of intellectual property ? </li></ul>
  27. 29. Current Environment <ul><li>Lack of consistent administrative rules and clear national legislation regarding ownership rights to IP created at academic institutions throughout the CEE hurt both the inventors and the institutions . </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Lack of clear ownership of IP leads to delays in licensing processes (at a minimum) and at worst makes IP impossible to license at all. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The academic institutions in the CEE must work at the national level, if necessary, to ensure that the ownership rights in the academic field are clearly defined. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Institutions may lose financial opportunities because they may not provide sufficient administrative support and incentive for researchers to entrust the administration with their IP. </li></ul>
  28. 30. University Innovation Fund Exploitation of University IP (20% to UF, 50-80% to inventor) I N C O M E S C O S T S University Central Budget (=???) Fees of IP Protection Running expenses of Patents Other costs
  29. 31. Learning from best <ul><li>“ Taking inspiration from the United States, nearly all other OECD countries have reformed research funding regulations or employment laws to allow research institutions to file, own and license the IP generated with public research funds.” Prominent among these are Germany, Austria, Denmark, Norway, Japan and Korea . </li></ul><ul><li>See: OECD report “Turning Science into Business: Patenting and Licensing at Public Research Organizations 2003” </li></ul>
