Effects of University-Industry Interaction on Firm’s Innovation: Empirical Evidence from Brazilian Firms.

Daniel Pedro Puffal, Rafael Teixeira

Abstract


This paper investigates the university-industry interaction and its effect on the likelihood of product and process innovation, in a developing country. We argue that firms differ in the type and determinants of interactions with universities and these differences may result in different innovation outcomes. We collected and analyzed primary data from 325 firms that had any interaction with universities in previous years. Logistic regression results provide some support for our argument by demonstrating how different types of interaction result in different innovation outcomes.

Keywords
