Abstract

Is there a secret recipe for highly effective rewarding Academia-Corporate/University-Industry (A-C/U-I) partnerships? 14 key opinion leaders and stakeholders from global, national and regional industry, academia and independent knowledge transfer organisations were chosen to have in-depth interviews, to understand key issues around these questions. Results of this research demonstrate that high level scientific efforts, interpersonal skills, people competencies, organisational behaviour and leadership attributes are the key success factors required to establish and manage A-C/U-I Strategic Partnerships (SPs) effectively. SPs require alignment of mutual complementary interests and skills to co-design research with strategic partners - a concept that most organisations appear to be oblivious of. On the other side of the coin poor policies, lengthy administrative processes, lack of clear strategy on valuing research intellectual property and people without requisite attributes are the main barriers that pose significant threat. Conclusions are that traditional approaches to measure 'success outcomes' pose significant risks as success of these strategic partnerships cannot be measured with conventional quantitative metrics.
