Industry–University Collaboration by Canadian Manufacturing Firms
We analyze the collaboration between manufacturing firms and universities in Canada. The data comes from the Statistics Canada Survey of Innovation, 1999. After a survey of the literature we present a statistical description of collaborating firms, their reasons for collaboration and the impact of collaboration on their performance. The econometric analysis estimates the probability that a firm collaborates with universities. The results suggest that collaboration with universities is frequent in knowledge based industries. Research undertaken in partnerships complements, rather than replaces, R&D by collaborating firms. Collaboration improves the performance of innovating firms.
