ABSTRACT
Both the software industry and academia promote collaboration to solve challenges together that neither can solve alone. Collaboration brings opportunities to understand and improve in ways not possible when working apart, but it succeeds only if both parties are contributing. A collaboration model developed from eight years' experience setting up and managing a research center explicitly focused on industry needs is based on five success factors enabling research results (need orientation, industry goal alignment, deployment impact, industry benefit, and innovativeness), five success factors enabling research activities (management engagement, network access, collaborator match, communication ability, and continuity), and 10 action principles for industry-academia collaboration management.
