This study investigates the motivations and channels utilized by universities in establishing university industry partnerships. The research focuses on a case study conducted at the largest higher education institution in Armenia. A comprehensive literature review was initially conducted to gain a deep understanding of the motivations and channels within the framework of university-industry partnerships. Data for this study was collected through online questionnaires administered to the YSU Faculty Administrative Staff, including deans and chairs. Additionally, a documentary analysis was employed as a supplementary data collection method. The analysis of the literature resulted in the development of a hierarchical classification with group/subgroup divisions for the collaboration channels, which distinguishes itself from other variations by encompassing all possible channels. Furthermore, a set of criteria was developed to assess the impact, practical applicability, and feasibility of each collaboration channel. Based on the survey results, these criteria were used to characterize each collaboration channel. The study also examined the primary constraints and difficulties associated with university-industry partnerships. The findings of the study offer several suggestions and implications for policy development.
Academic Entrepreneurship; Innovative Capacity; Innovative education; Research and Development; Knowledge and Technology Accumulation.
