Abstract

Knowledge transfer from university research to industry is an important part of the ecosystem of innovation that has great economic and social impacts. The purpose of this study was to develop evaluation framework for university-industry collaborative research and technological initiative at Universiti Teknologi Malaysia, by identifying the success criteria of university-industry collaborative research and technological initiative as perceived by academics. The research conducted in six faculties of Universiti Teknologi Malaysia. Results show that all of the respondents, whether have experience in research collaboration or not, had similar opinion about the importance of success criteria. In addition, all respondents whether had work experience in industry or not, had almost the same opinion about the importance of success criteria. Moreover the results show there was no significant difference between viewpoints of respondents from different faculties for success criteria. All of these similarities allow us to generalize this framework for all academic staffs regardless their experience in research collaboration activities, work experience in industry, and the field of research. As a consequence of this research project, an initial framework for continued development of an evaluation process has been established. Future research to refine the indicators and measurements of success criteria is needed.
