Abstract

This research in progress is based on a qualitative approach with multiple case studies using Nonaka’s theory of knowledge creation and conceptualisation of a knowledge -creating place, Ba. It addresses the high-level  need  to  make  collaboration  more  effecti ve  between  university  and  industry  by  exploring shared  collaborative  spaces  in  collaborative  research  projects.  It  uses  semi -structured  interviews, participant observation, and document analysis to look at the ways in which researchers and industry representatives with different culture within these partnerships create shared collaborative spaces to share  information  and  knowledge.  The  study  will  propose  a  conceptual  model  explicating  effective shared  collaborative  spaces  in  the  university-industry  collabor ation  (UIC)  context  according  to  the active  actors  (researchers  and  industry  representatives)  perspective.  The  model  will  be  an  original contribution  to  research  in  the  area  of  knowledge  management  in  UICs’.  Finding  effective  shared collaborative spaces may be lead to more effective collaboration between university and industry
