Via Scoop.itDual impact of research; towards the impactelligent university

« A case study in institutional openness has just been published, focused on Salford University. Written by the Vice Chancellor and EOS Board member, Professor Martin Hall, the study describes the drive to openness and the benefits it brings to the University and its public. « The University aims to create economic and social value through innovative ways of working together. A key element of this is openness », says Professor Hall. In the paper, he develops the concept of a ‘Generic Open Access University’ and describes how the univeristy repository, USIR, is the core of intermediary agencies and a wide range of networked connections. « The open access repository is at the heart of this model, in the place that the library has occupied from the earliest days of the university », Professor Hall says.
