    The Dublin Diaries
    Continuing his interest in the role of higher education in developing high-technology and life sciences research, Dr. Trani was a Visiting Professor at University College Dublin in Ireland during the summer of 2002. The result of his study, “Dublin Diaries: A Study of High Technology Development in Ireland,” published in fall 2002, explores the stunning economic growth of the “Celtic Tiger.” After conversations with nearly 70 academic, business and government leaders, Dr. Trani presents a comprehensive perspective of Ireland’s economic development and explores ways that the partnership of academia, business and government can continue to promote growth in that country.

    The Cambridge Report
    In spring 1998, Dr. Trani served a sabbatical at St. John’s College in Cambridge, England, where he completed a study entitled “Richmond at the Crossroads: the Greater Richmond Metropolitan Area and the Knowledge Based High Technology Economy of the 21st Century,” comparing high-technology development in Cambridge and Richmond. As a result of this study, Dr. Trani has been invited to give numerous presentations on the factors that are important to high-technology and biotechnology development. These invitations included serving as a panelist at the July 1999 conference, “Fostering Enterprise: The American Experience,” co-sponsored by the U.S. Embassy in London and the government of the United Kingdom, and presenting a paper entitled “The Collaborative University and High-Technology Development in the 21st Century” for the Oxford Round Table higher-education conference. The paper will be published in the conference proceedings.
