Universities are critical, but their role should be reconsidered:

Universities are not primarily ‘ideas factories’, inventing
things that need to be ‘commercialised’.
They are best viewed as repositories of expertise: companies

cannot afford to maintain all fields in-house, but they often
need to draw upon sophisticated capabilities for problemsolving
during the innovation process.
