Resumé

In this chapter, we work from the assumption that university engagement can be fostered by addressing the
dissemination of scientific knowledge as a communication process, and we explore how university
engagement can be encouraged through the communication of scientific knowledge to SMEs (small and
medium-sized enterprises). First, a literature review allows for the identification of well-known barriers to
the dissemination of scientific knowledge to SMEs. Second, an empirical study of the ‘situation’ of eight
Danish SMEs provides insights into their situation (circumstances, barriers and potentials) in relation to
scientific knowledge, which must be taken into account in attempts to communicate scientific knowledge
to SMEs. Based on this analysis, we discuss solutions and outline some communicative principles that can
contribute with a solution-oriented perspective on how communicating scientific knowledge to SMEs can
foster university engagement.
