In light of the incentive systems (Fulton and Trow 1974; Ponomariov and Boardman 2010) within most universities, not to mention the tendency of researchers to stay in their “comfort zone,” it is perhaps not surprising that such collaborations would tend to drift toward knowledge-focused (read: “publications-focused”) outputs. 3 Outputs and Impacts for “Product-Focused” Collaborations 37 informal collaboration of researchers (Link et al. 2007) in different sectors to such mechanisms as joint ventures, research consortia, multi-discipline/multi-institution university research centers (MMURCs), formal research alliances and partnerships, co-location incubator cooperative research, and research and technical assistance contracts.

1984) and Dewar and Dutton (1986) find “incremental” research (not deviating much from existing knowledge and practice) to correlate informal organizational capital and “radical” research (deviating greatly from existing knowledge and technology) to correlate with formal organizational capital. This latter relationship occurs because there is low goal congruence and resource interdependence amongst collaborators, which requires structure to keep individual behaviors aligned with firm goals due to the risk that is inherent in relatively “radical” departures from existing knowledge and practice (Ducheseneau 1979; Ouchi 1980; Hage 1980).

They found that firms from smaller economy European nations were more likely to participate and more likely to benefit. Benefits occurred not only in knowledge acquisition, but also cost savings, cost sharing, and cost avoidance. But the chief benefit reported was increments to the firms’ knowledge base. The study was based on firm reports with no other supporting data. Levy et al. (2009), a study sharply limited by its focus on industry collaborations in a single university, provide a finding quite relevant and, if it has external validity, important to the study of industry-university research collaboration.
