    Affiliated Faculty as a strategic resource: Industry and university expectations2015Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Introduction

    The entire system of higher education has changed radically during the last decades. This includes for example both changes in the structure of funding as well as increased demands from the labour market. One strategy to adopt to the new conditions is to develop close ties to external organizations such as industry (Clark 1998; Slaughter and Leslie 1997). This paper investigates expectations on, and roles of, researchers from industry, affiliated part time at Higher Education Institutions (HEIs). In this paper we call these researchers “affiliated faculty”. The questions are, what are the expectations from HEIs as well as from industry on the affiliated faculty? And how does this correspond to the role taken by these affiliated researchers?

    Methodology

    The paper is based on the results of documentary studies and interviews at KTH Royal Institute of Technology and Mälardalen University. In total 27 interviews, including affiliated professors and management from industry and HEI, are undertaken. From this material, a pattern has been distinguished through content analysis (Patton 2002).

    Preliminary Results

    The interviews reveal that high but divergent expectations are placed on the affiliated faculty. Affiliated faculty are expected to bring in new experiences and contacts from industry to enrich the university environment. However the process of affiliating a professor is described as very dependent on personal contacts. The affiliated faculty are also a way of promoting the university, making its research and its brand more visible outside academia. By contrast, industry has its primary focus on educational aspects. Industrial partners are, for example, interested in bringing concrete industrial problems that can be used as examples in teaching and learning. Affiliated professors themselves express that one of their missions is to identify the best students for future recruitment. From a personal perspective, the affiliated professors appreciate the possibility of having the time to go deeper into questions that they do not find time for in their ordinary jobs.

    Roles of Affiliated Faculty at HEIs2014Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This is a part of a lager study investigating the strategy on researchers from industry affiliated part time as professors at Higher Education Institutions (HEIs). These researchers are here called “affiliated faculty”. The question to be answered in this presentation is: what are the roles of affiliated faculty at a HEIs?

    University Strategies on Affiliated Faculty2014Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The question raised in this paper is: what are the strategies and expectations on affiliated faculty from HEI management? The paper presents a comparative study between two Swedish HEIs both operating in the field of technology. 23 interviews, of which 11 with HEI management and 12 with affiliated professors, have been undertaken. Results show that the faculty is growing organically and less strategic than expected considering it being a high profile issue at both HEIs. Tensions are found, concerning for example mobility and the relation between affiliated and regular faculty. As well as on whether it is the company or the individual that is in focus. Results reveal that high but divergent expectations from different levels of management are placed on the affiliated faculty. The study has also shown how affiliated faculty can be used as a strategic tool in different phases of the development of a HEI.

    Translating tenure track into Swedish: tensions when implementing an academic career system2017In: Studies in Higher Education, ISSN 0307-5079, E-ISSN 1470-174XArticle in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Academic career systems have been in focus lately as a means to attract talented researchers and teachers. In this paper, we compare tenure tracks at three Swedish universities. The analysis relies on qualitative data, including interviews and policy documents, and revolves around three questions: How is the tenure track designed? What were the drivers behind the new tenure track? How is the tenure track designed to handle emerging tensions? We identify three common drivers and rationales: transparency, recruitment of early career researchers and long-term retention of staff. The article ends with a discussion of important considerations that were made when introducing the tenure track. The considerations derive from the tensions between research and teaching, between scope and funding and between the needs of the institution and the rights of the individual. The results are important in an increasingly competitive higher education sector aiming to construct and implement attractive career systems.
