Εμπορική Αξιοποίηση της Επιστημονικής Έρευνας

Ανάγκη, Πολυτέλεια ή Ανάθεμα;


Εν μέσω ραγδαίων τεχνολογικών εξελίξεων, πολιτικοί, κοινωνικοί και οικονομικοί φορείς στρέφονται με αυξανόμενες αξιώσεις προς τα πανεπιστήμια, προσδοκώντας την αμεσότερη αξιοποίηση των πορισμάτων της επιστημονικής έρευνας στην παραγωγή καινοτομιών και την εφαρμογή τους σε παραγωγικές διαδικασίες με απτά οικονομικά αποτελέσματα. Οι αξιώσεις αυτές καθίστανται ιδιαίτερα έντονες σε επιστήμες όπως η Πληροφορική και σε τομείς όπως η Διαχείριση Δεδομένων, με προφανείς και πολυδιάστατες επιδράσεις σε ένα ευρύτατο φάσμα οικονομικών δραστηριοτήτων και κοινωνικών διεργασιών.

Στη συζήτηση στρογγυλής τράπεζας η οποία θα πραγματοποιηθεί στο πλαίσιο του 16ου Συμποσίου Διαχείρισης Δεδομένων, θα συζητηθεί αν οι προαναφερθείσες προσδοκίες είναι συμβατές με την αποστολή και τη φιλοσοφία των σύγχρονων πανεπιστημίων, θα σκιαγραφηθούν διεθνείς πρακτικές και θα συζητηθούν ενδεχόμενες αλλαγές στο αξιακό, θεσμικό και λειτουργικό περιβάλλον του πανεπιστημίου, ώστε αυτό να ανταποκριθεί στον προσδοκώμενο ρόλο του ως μοχλός οικονομικής ανάπτυξης.

Η συζήτηση είναι ανοιχτή στο κοινό.
