This dissertation presents research results on the consequences of public-private knowledge transfers as well as a new method for science evaluations. The first part explores effects of academic consulting on scientists’ research performance. The second part investigates the role of direct knowledge interaction with public research institutions for the innovation performance of New Technology-Based Firms. The third part provides a new method for science evaluations which is based on the similarity between text individual scientists and externally validated knowledge frontiers. Implications for research and innovation policy are drawn.
