The foundations of knowledge according to the Knowledge Foundation
University of Gävle, Faculty of Education and Business Studies, Department of Humanities.
2013 (English)In: Transformations in Research, Higher Education and the Academic Market: The Breakdown of Scientific Thought / [ed] Rider, Sharon; Hasselberg, Ylva; Waluszewski, Alexandra, Dordrecht: Springer Science+Business Media B.V., 2013, 1, 97-109 p.Chapter in book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

This chapter examines how the concept of innovation is used to transfer funding from teaching and research to industry and transform the concept of the social to the concept of the economic, through an examination of one Swedish Research Council, the Knowledge Foundation. In its most ambitious scheme to date, the funding of so-called KF Research Centres, the aim is to support the integration of research and teaching at regional colleges with regional industries and individual companies. The interests of major actors in business and industry are systematically described as the interests of “society” or “the region”. College teachers and scholars, especially in the social sciences and the humanities, are pressured to produce educational programmes and research that are considered desirable for these actors or see their disciplines disappear. In short, they must choose between economic or professional bankruptcy.
