English abstract
The role of continuous innovation is imperative to creating and maintaining sustainable communities. The role of collaboration is also imperative to creating and maintaining sustainable communities. Researchers mean that the educational system should be an active player in supporting government policies to promote local entrepreneurship and find it crucial to create collaborations among and within universities to achieve this. But what if the practice of the solution is the complex phenomenon? The word “collaboration” is a multifaceted term that has created a lot of ambiguities amongst organizations. This study therefore aimed to unravel the characteristics of inter-organizational collaboration between university-linked innovation organizations by studying the collaboration between two innovation organizations linked to Malmö University. The outcome was depicted in a model as a suggestion to a framework of the collaborative efforts between university-linked innovation organizations. Whereas there are a number of pre-identified elements for successful collaboration, it was found that five distinct elements played a bigger role than others. These are committed members, access to resources, relationships & mutuality, diverse skillset and time& patience. These, alongside with a conflict-resolution strategy and a defined process map out the cornerstones of the suggested model.
