University-industry collaboration and absorption capacity in knowledge creation in Latin America

University-industry collaboration and absorption capacity in knowledge creation in Latin America Knowledge creation is a critical factor in countries' economic development because advancing in technological innovation depends on effective knowledge management. The objective of this work is to explore the causal relationships that condition knowledge creation in Latin America. For this purpose, a comparative qualitative analysis of fuzzy sets (FsQCA) was carried out to explore the causal relationships between University-Industry (U-I) collaboration and absorption capacity that result in knowledge creation regionally in Latin America. This study identified two configurations for the study period (2016-2021) that suggest different alternatives to enhance knowledge creation. The findings indicate the importance of U-I collaboration in developing economies which do not have the capacity to create leading knowledge, but can at least absorb existing knowledge and apply it internally to gain benefits when faced with financial resource constraints. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png International Journal of Services Operations and Informatics Inderscience Publishers

Abstract

Knowledge creation is a critical factor in countries' economic development because advancing in technological innovation depends on effective knowledge management. The objective of this work is to explore the causal relationships that condition knowledge creation in Latin America. For this purpose, a comparative qualitative analysis of fuzzy sets (FsQCA) was carried out to explore the causal relationships between University-Industry (U-I) collaboration and absorption capacity that result in knowledge creation regionally in Latin America. This study identified two configurations for the study period (2016-2021) that suggest different alternatives to enhance knowledge creation. The findings indicate the importance of U-I collaboration in developing economies which do not have the capacity to create leading knowledge, but can at least absorb existing knowledge and apply it internally to gain benefits when faced with financial resource constraints.
