Which Is More Efficient - A Professor Leading His Research Group Or One Working Alone?, Adv. Complex Sys.
In recent years, we have been interested in the up-and-down prospects of academic societies, including both universities and academies. We have developed a University-Academy Coupling Model, which is built on the multi-agent simulation technique. In the artificial society, there exist both funding and "research seeds" that are requisite simultaneously for researchers to survive. The "seed" means a clue, source or new topic for his research activity. This paper focuses on how different efficiencies are observed in different types of organizing processes or personnel systems for research activity in universities.
