Abstract:

Chung Yuan Christian University (CYCU) in Taiwan has established its innovation and incubation centre in 1997, its patent licensing centre in 2003, followed by its Industry-Academia Operation Headquarters in 2009. CYCU ranks as the first in Taiwan’s private universities, and its industry-academia cooperation achievements have been increasingly approaching those of National Tsing Hua University (NTHU), one of Taiwan’s elite public universities. In 2005, CYCU ranked in the top 100 universities in receiving US patents in the world, and as No. 1 among private universities, and No.4 among all universities in Taiwan. The paper has three major objectives. First, to explain the government’s intervention through institutional arrangements and its effect and funding the development of university–industry collaborations in Taiwan in general, and CYCU in particular. Second, to elaborate the Executive Operation Office for Industry-Academia Cooperation (EOOIA) at CYCU as a case study and to explain its achievements. Third, to explore key influential factors from five in-depth case studies in UIG collaborations from EOOIA. The paper provides some implications for the theoretical development of knowledge management, and policy implications for a more effective and advanced level of knowledge transfer in university–industry collaborations.
