Star Scientists and Knowledge Transfer between Academia and Industry: Towards Promotion of Innovation.

Please see below [About] for the details.


In the field of Economics of Science, Zucker and Darby have pointed out the existence of “star scientists.” Theterm “star scientists” refers to the selected few scientists who can produce excellent results. They publish more articles than typical scientists. Their articles are cited more often than typical scientists. They apply for more patents than typical scientists. Star scientists also tend to found start-ups more often than typical scientists. Their start-ups can perform better than others. Linkage between star scientists and companies are observed not only in the U.S. but also partially in Japan in the 80s. We invite Professor Lynne Zucker and Michael Darby who established a series of star scientists’ studies and organize the following meetings on September 11th, 2017.
