AbstractThis paper studies an organizational innovation to foster research collaboration in a peripheral region. It uses a case study of a public-private corporation promoted by the Regional Government of Andalusia (Spain) that put together different types of firms and university research groups. It focuses on the process of building a new partnership taking into account its organizational features and the perspectives of industry stakeholders. Three types of information have been collected: qualitative interviews with industry managers, internal information provided by the corporation, and the results of an impact assessment. The findings show that this arrangement may incubate cooperative R&D in a regional environments characterized by low absorptive capacities, lack of trust and a cultural gap between science and industry. The results also show some limits related to the organizational design, the research orientation of the activities and the regional scope. The case study is used for informing the discussion on Triple Helix organizations regarding their possibilities for engaging partners with different expectations.
