BELGIUM - Scientists conduct research on behalf of government and industry. Companies finance chairs and universities derive income from patents on research results. The three-part series 'University for Sale?' examines the relationship between science, government and industry.

Universities today are not only responsible for education and basic research, but have been declared drivers of innovation and economic growth in the knowledge economy. And that includes cooperation with industry. The three-part series 'University for Sale?' explores the consequences of this.
