- Studies on innovation using innovation system perspective have assigned an important role for university industry interaction. However, most of these studies have been undertaken in the developed countries. In this context the present study, drawing data from a primary survey of firms covering different manufacturing industries and universities in four states of India, attempts at throwing light on a number of issues relating to the status of interaction, inducing factors and the innovative outcomes of interaction. Low levels of university industry interaction notwithstanding, the study suggests that firms that collaborated with universities achieved a higher level of innovative ability.
