Abstract
Following the reflection around the emergence of “research university” in the context of the slow but progressive increase in value of science and technology and research and development in Portugal, a study applied to the knowledge transfer and the process of innovation in the university, in the context of a master dissertation in information science (IS), study area of information management, is presented. The university is one of the most important institutions in the context of the national innovation system (SNI), being part of its mission the creation and transfer of knowledge. At the University of Porto (U.Porto), projects, such as the University of Porto Innovation unit (U.Porto Inovação) and the Science and Technology Park of the University of Porto (UPTEC) seek to support the university's innovation value chain, promoting the reinforcement and solidification of knowledge transfer and of the relations between the university and companies, as well as the promotion and support to the creation of companies with a technological, scientific, and creative base, and the attraction of numerous innovation centers of national and international companies. This chapter points out an informational perspective on I&D+i (research and development and innovation) and entrepreneurship, based on the systemic theory and the quadripolar method, as theoretical and methodological guidance tools, and an information management/knowledge management approach of innovation models for the knowledge economy, the national and international referents, and corresponding set of indicators. An exploratory study, which allowed the identification of internal and external agents, the resources, the relations between actors and institutions, the processes and flows, and the main inputs and outputs, is presented. The most relevant result is embodied in a model of innovation indicators in an academic context and applied to the University of Porto.

ICERI2016: 9TH INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE OF EDUCATION, RESEARCH AND INNOVATION

Abstract
Project-based learning offers a student centered pedagogy and a dynamic approach which promotes a deeper knowledge through real-world challenges and problems solving. The U.Openlab concept is developed at the University of Porto (U.Porto) in the context of the teaching/learning process and is assumed to be an interaction facilitator platform between real-world needs and practical works topics. The aim is to provide innovative answers and the effective use of assessment results, the credits recognition for future professional or scientific careers and a sustainable process oriented for, among others, universities heritage services' needs. The pilot-project in course at the University of Porto, focusing on the U.Porto Digital Museum, includes a technological infrastructure with three main components: several collections, an information and services management platform, with its corresponding digital repository; the U.Porto community contributions management platform (U.Porto OpenLab); and an adaptive framework that will support various interface applications with non-specific audiences. The U.Porto OpenLab considers two main areas: the bidding management area/calls for contributions and a contributions personal management area. The professor, the student and the "client" are the actors in the process. As for main tasks we point out the reception, selection and distribution of real needs/problems. Having concluded the assessment process, results were selected and an online publication was submitted. The inherent credits are recorded in a contributors' digital portfolio management and in the professional social networks profiles. The methodology will be presented and discussed as well as the process along with the obstacles and other factors contributing to the success and future replication of this experience.

Handbook of Research on Effective Project Management through the Integration of Knowledge and Innovation

Abstract
This chapter presents an evolutionary analysis, at the Portuguese and European levels, that features Higher Education centred on the University's Mission, the building and importance of National Innovation System, and related dynamics. The university should fulfil the fundamental role related with creation, preservation, and dissemination of knowledge and generate skills and key competences to respond to increasingly more complex problems in a rapidly changing environment, as well as to enable multidisciplinary approaches that are in the university's own and peculiar nature, and which is fostered by the relationships with the systems that drive the interaction with the target communities. Referring to the last quarter of the 20th century, the chapter outlines the emergence of the "Research University" in the context of the slow but progressive increase in value of Science and Technology and Research and Development, with the organization of the related National Systems in order to be able to foster innovation.
