To test for any nonlinear life-cycle effect (Levin and Stephan 1991), the squared value (EXPER2) is included. For differences in the size of the different institutions is controlled for by including the (logged) total number of students (UNI_SIZE). Larger universities may, for instance, be more visible to funding agencies and to industry and thus attract relatively more third-party funding.

Or do they seek access to rather applied research that provides knowledge that is closer to applicable technology and thus closer to marketable innovations? Previous studies did shed some light on the question which fields of science were particularly interesting for certain industries and on the importance of geographical proximity and faculty quality for getting funded by industry (Mansfield 1995; Mansfield and Lee 1996). At the university level, Ljungberg (2008) finds that mainly larger and highly specialized universities in Sweden attract most industry funding relative to their size.
