Knowledge transfer and interactive learning between universities and firms through collaborative research projects

Project: PHD

Project Details


This doctoral project aims at a deeper understanding of knowledge channels between academic researchers and private firms in the context of collaborative projects (e. a. jointly defined and conducted R&D projects). A multi-case study will be conducted in order to examine actual knowledge and influence flows between partners. Eventually, quantitative evidence will also be gathered in order to depict the collaborative behaviors of Belgian research laboratories.
