  • Cristina ŞERBĂNICĂ

    (Bucharest Academy of Economic Studies)


This paper underlines the main roles of universities in regional innovation systems, as well as the barriers to university – business cooperation for regional innovation. At the same time, the study proposes a qualitative content analysis of Regional Innovation Strategies (RIS) that were drafted for six of the eight Romanian NUT 2 regions, in order to identify the causes of the weak university – business cooperation. Results are then shyntethised in a cause and effect map that can be a useful diagnosis and control tool in regional planning.
