Abstract:Empirical studies on R&D collaborations between companies and universities laid emphasize on early stage factors enabling the success of such collaborations. This paper extends the current research by investigating the impact of two factors on the R&D collaboration success. The paper seeks to analysis if a narrow project breadth and complementary expertise lead to success in terms of product development success as well revenue generated by the R&D collaboration. The method of analysis includes a binary logistic regression. The logistic regression model is generally used to analyze the relationship between a single predictor, or multi-predictors, and an outcome that is dichotomous in nature (having 2 outcomes such as occurrence or absence of a certain ‘’event’’; in our case success or not successful. Results of data analyzed show that project breadth is an early stage success factors for R&D collaborations only in terms of product development. The result in this study showed that it wasn’t a success factor regarding the revenue generated by the R&D collaboration. In this study, complementary expertise also appears to not be an early stage success factors for R&D collaborations in regards to product development and revenue generated.
