Abstract

Research in collaboration has increased over the last years due to the benefits associated when two or more entities collaborate. Although this research has been more focused on enterprises, collaboration between Academy-Industry is also a current research key factor, especially to carry on and improve innovation activities. Academy-Industry collaboration allows that the pioneering creativity emerged in the Academy is complemented by its implementation in industries. In the light of this, this paper introduces the IDEA project, whose main aim is to handle the knowledge triangle of Education-Research-Innovation and promote the development of Academia-Industry partnerships. The paper specifically focuses on the contribution of one of the academic partners of the project, the Universitat Politècnica de València (UPV), defining its knowledge and technology transfer models used promote Academia-Industry partnerships.
