Internationalisation of universities: the case of Spain
by Oihana Basilio, M. Paloma Sanchez
International Journal of Healthcare Technology and Management (IJHTM), Vol. 11, No. 5, 2010

Abstract: Industry–university relations have been undergoing a considerable internationalisation process in recent decades, following the trend of general internationalisation of university activities. To study these changes and suggest a framework to analyse the internationalisation of universities, this paper applies the taxonomy developed by Archibugi and Michie (1995) for techno-globalism to the internationalisation of knowledge and integrates it with the different university missions: teaching, research and third mission (Schoen et al., 2007). After providing some examples of governmental programmes to encourage such internationalisation using the proposed framework, the paper studies the Spanish case, with an emphasis on the knowledge-transfer to industry and the move towards internationalisation of university–industry relations.
