Industry income reflects a university’s ability to help industry with innovations, inventions and consultancy, and at a national and continental level reflects a region’s connection to the wider economy.

Here, the data reveal that Asia, while lagging behind the world on international working, leads on working with industry. North America scores close to the world average, and Africa is closing the gap on South America.

The top three countries when it comes to knowledge transfer are the Netherlands, Belgium and Indonesia.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, the place that has improved the most in working with industry over the past five years is Hong Kong, where the average score rose from 53 to 64. The second largest increase was in Denmark, which rose from 52 to 60.
