University-Industry Collaboration as a Determinant of Innovation in Nigeria
AbstractThis paper examines the types, intensity, and impact of collaboration and learning in Nigeria. Two separate studies are used to examine on the one hand, the way universities collaborate with other actors within a national system of innovation (NSI) framework and how firms collaborate with universities and other actors on the other. Descriptive statistics and Probit regression confirm some of what we know from the literature about collaborative learning. The size of organizations and firms, infrastructure, and human capability proxied by number of PhDs all tend to influence the types and intensity of collaboration that result in innovation.
