In the knowledge-based economy, there has been growing emphasis on University-Industry (U-I) links to create innovations. The korean government has actively implemented the policies promotions U-I links by providing institutional supports since the 1990s.
However, Korea's innovation actors are not willing to cooperate compared to other advanced countries'. In spite of many supports and policies for U-I collaborations, the culture of cooperation has not settled yet. Especially many points out that individual academic researchers limitedly participate in U-I collaborations.
This research examines U-I collaboration motivation and value of the academic researchers at the individual level to solve the cultural problems which slows proliferation of the real collaborations, and rather produce the formal events. This research analyzed the Korean faculty members’ individual perceptions and motivations, and their collaboration activities with industries. We found that the individual perceptions and external environments of the U-I links make a difference in the motivations and the patterns of collaboration activities.
