Abstract [en]

R&D managers at 50 firms randomly selected from all firms who have formal relations withtwo research universities in Stockholm are being interviewed about their rationales forcollaboration. Drawing on this material, a distinctive typology of rationales and the therewithassociated effects from cooperative relations is presented. As expected, rationales related toinnovation, in terms of invented or improved products or processes, are found to be themain drivers for interaction. As regards the nature of the innovation process leading toinnovation, most respondents indicate that “indirect” relationships between collaborationoutcomes and successful innovation dominate over “direct” appropriation of results.Contrasting open ended search rationales with pursuit of defined objectives, we find thatboth types are strongly represented among the studied collaborative linkages. We also findthat interaction rationales often go beyond the pursuit of innovation per se; firms also workwith university researchers to access academic networks, to develop its human capital and torealise direct business opportunities. The consequences of these findings for policy measuressteered towards the strengthening of collaborative university-industry linkages are discussed.
