    Three Minute Thesis Competition - Welcome and Introduction
    (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2016-11-15) Garbers, Jeff ; Cozzens, Susan E.
    Three Minute Thesis (3MT™) is a research communication competition developed by The University of Queensland in Australia in 2008. The premise of the competition is to develop academic, presentation, and research communication skills. It supports the development of students’ capacities to effectively explain their research in language appropriate to an intelligent but nonspecialist audience.

    North-South and South-South Reseaerch Collaboration: What Difference does it make for developing countries? - The Case of Colombia
    (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2011-09-17) Cozzens, Susan E. ; García-Luque, Margarita ; Ordóñez-Matamoros, Gonzalo
    Research collaboration (RC) is associated with both positive and negative effects on the performance of research. It is said to increase creativity, scientific productivity, research quality, innovative capacity, the creation of science and technology human capital, the consolidation of research agendas, the expansion of research areas and disciplines and, ultimately, the development of new or better processes, products and services. Risks and costs associated include the privatization and capture of traditional public knowledge, the mercantilization of knowledge and human capital, and the lost of research autonomy. Little is known about the ways RC affects local scientific and technological capabilities when it involves scientists and engineers working in developing countries, however. This is presumably the result of the popular assumption that there are no specific and distinctive effects associated with the geographical localization of the partners. This research assesses empirically such assumption and explores the effects of collaboration with different types of partners on the performance of research teams working in Colombia, an S&T-developing country. In particular, it explores the performance of 1889 research teams and the effects attributable to partners from northern and southern countries involved into two different types of collaboration activities: hosting foreign researchers, and working with foreign funding. Results from multivariate regressions and non-parametric analyses show that teams collaborating with partners from the south report higher scientific production, while those collaborating with northern countries seem to contribute the most to local knowledge. 20 interviews were performed to assess the plausibility of the models and of the findings. Theoretical and policy implications of the results are discussed.

    What does International Co-authorship Measure?
    (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2011-09-17) Cozzens, Susan E. ; Thakur, Dhanaraj ; Wang, Jian
    By interviewing co-authors of papers in the field of bio-fuels this article looks at the various factors explaining how international research collaboration is organized. We found several factors such as motivations, differences in those from the Global North and South, and research rank. We then proposed new models for the emergence of international research collaboration.

    Policy Pathways, Policy Networks, and Citizen Deliberation: Disseminating the Results of World Wide Views on Global Warming in the United States
    (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2011-09-17) Bal, Ravtosh ; Cozzens, Susan E. ; Delborne, Jason A. ; Schneider, Jen ; Worthington, Richard
    "World Wide Views on Global Warming involved 44 citizen deliberations in 38 countries, focusing on questions of climate change policy addressed at the United Nations Climate Change Conference in December 2009 (COP15). Sponsors and organizers pursued numerous policy pathways to influence the COP15 negotiations, and this paper examines the success of such strategies in the U.S. context.

    Reducing Inequality: What Role for Technology Manufacturing?
    (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2011-09-16) Castillo-Manrique, Rafael ; Cozzens, Susan E.
    This study examines whether rapid growth decreases inequality primarily when it is based on an expansion of manufacturing jobs. To this end, we constructed a dataset to identify a specific set of countries that showed reduction in inequality and high or medium growth rates in order to explore, as case studies, the details of the connection between growth, technology and inequality.

    Community-Based Innovation Dynamics in the Water Supply and Sanitation (WSS) Sector
    (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2011-09-16) Catalán, Pablo ; Cozzens, Susan E.
    The article aims to determine what are the dynamics of innovation in the establishment of rural Water Supply and Sanitation-Community Based systems by focusing on the case of rural communities in Costa Rica. Results show that leadership and sense of ownership do have a greater role in increasing sustainability and learning.

    Nanotechnology and the Millennium Development Goals: Energy, Water, and Agri-food
    (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2011-09-15) Cortes Lobo, Rodrigo ; Cozzens, Susan E. ; Soumonni, Ougundiran ; Woodson, Thomas
    We analyzed the progress in pro-poor nanotechnology applications in energy, water, and agrifood sectors in achieving the UN Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). We considered the results from an international panel of experts (Salamanca-Buentello 2004) that identified the top ten nanotechnology applications that they believed could speed up progress towards the MDG goals. Our results confirm little advancement in this respect.

    Evaluating the additionality and certification effects of research and innovation policy on small business start-ups: an inflow-sampling and counterfactual approach
    (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2011-09-15) Cozzens, Susan E. ; Galope, Reynold V.
    Using a unique inflow sample of business founded in 2004 and tracked ever since, this paper uses non-parametric treatment effect estimators to measure the additionality effect of a U.S. federal R&D program among small business start-ups. Our empirical analysis shows that recipient small business start-ups spent more than four times in research and development (R&D) as much as their observationally similar counterparts did, suggesting that the Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) grants did not crowd out firm-financed R&D.

    Social and Technological Entrepreneurship -- Do the Twain Ever Meet?
    (Georgia Institute of Technology, 2011-09-15) Cozzens, Susan E. ; White, Thema Monroe
    Entrepreneurship is an enduring theme in innovation studies and a long-standing object of innovation policy. Social enterprises broadly defined, are those which apply business principles to solve social problems. This paper explores the extent to which social entrepreneurs use technological innovation to help them achieve sustainable social impact.
