It has long been recognised that the innovative and entrepreneurial capabilities of the small medium-sized enterprise (SME) sector can make an important contribution to the commercialisation of emerging technologies. In their role as centres of expertise and originators of new technical knowledge, universities are vital contributors to this process.(More)
Perhaps unsurprisingly for a singer-songwriter whose career spans more than half a century, Van Morrison has taken the opportunity to try on many voices. At some points the voice has seemed to burst forth from a body that could barely contain it; at others it has been a languid croon that countered its bullying other with caress and seduction.
