Complementarity or substitution between University-Industry relationships and academic research

Triple Helix VII. 7th biennial International Conference on University, Industry & Government Linkages. 17-19 Junio 2009
This paper analyses whether academic research and university-industry relationships (UIR) activities have complementary effects on the scientific production of university lecturers. The analysis is based on a case study of two Spanish universities. We find that the positive effect of UIR on researchers? scientific production comes mainly from the capacity to provide complementary cognitive resources for research activities. The access to these resources depends on the type of linkage activity and the characteristics of the partner.
