Seminar on University Research Development and Technology Transfer November 10 - December 12, 2003

The Center on Chinese Education, Teachers College Columbia University conducted a five-week seminar in November-December 2003 for 17 university leaders from the People's Republic of China. These participants consisted of presidents and vice-presidents from 13 national research-oriented universities as well as senior personnel concerned with high-education policies in China. The topic of the seminar was university research development and technology transfer. It provided the opportunity for the Chinese participants to have a better understanding of how major research universities in the United States promote excellence in research and commercialize research output, and to share their experience with their US counterparts.

The seminar began with a two-week workshop held at Teachers College Columbia University, consisting mostly of presentations and discussion led by leading experts from academe, the private sector, as well as government and professional organizations. The Chinese participants then headed for a field study in Washington, DC, visiting the National Institute of Health, the National Science Foundation, the American Council of Education, and a science-policy office in the US Congress. The last two weeks of the seminar was devoted to an in-depth field study of three universities: Columbia University, Stanford University, and Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

The seminar was jointly organized by the Center on Chinese Education at TC and the National Academy of Educational Administration (NAEA), China. In China, NAEA has the primary responsibility for organizing and providing training to university leaders and other senior leaders in the education sector. This seminar is part of a multi-year program to upgrade the skills and knowledge of leaders of national universities in China to foster university excellence in the global environment of the twenty-first century.
