AbstractUniversities and public research centers are currently considered a key element for increasing innovation performance and improving the competitiveness of firms. Recent studies suggest that enterprises use multiple channels in their relations with universities. Nonetheless, empirical research encounters difficulties for obtaining detailed observations. This article examines the links between industry and universities, specifically focusing on the diversity of situations in which these interactions occur. To this end, we present a set of hypotheses that try to capture the complexity of this phenomenon. For our analysis we use a survey of 737 enterprises that reflects the variety of innovative profiles of firms in a given region. The questionnaire employs a large set of variables to measure the different types of interaction. The aim of the analyses is that of identifying the most important relations, to determine how these are structured and to draw a map of enterprises according to the links they forge with universities.
