MEDIA REVIEWS

'Managers will find numerous information and ideas in this remarkable book on how to best tap into universities' knowledge and technology, in order to help develop their business and create new ones. The book definitely fills a gap on an issue that is a high priority in most countries. Furthermore, it is very clearly written and very relevant to practitioners. A must read!' - Kris Gopalakrishnan, CEO of Infosys, Bangalore.

'This book is inspiring for those who are committed to contributing to a more sustainable world! All elements of Open Innovation are explained and illustrated extremely well with numerous examples, making clear that the business center of gravity is clearly shifting East (China,Taiwan, Singapore, India). The new data and very convincing material as gathered from the BRIC countries is a kind of wake-up call for anyone active in R&D, Innovation or Technology Transfer.' - Robert Kirschbaum, Vice President Innovation of DSM, The Netherlands
