Determinants of R&D cooperation: an institutional perspective

Existing literature on the determinants of research & development (R&D) cooperation discusses mainly the factors which are specific to organization. But the issues of institutional environment in which such interactions take place remain relatively less explored. This study identifies some particular institutions such as ‘Research and Technology Transfer’, and the ‘regulatory’ institutions which promote R&D cooperation in a country. The study is limited to some particular but formal institutions which help improve R&D cooperation.  The conclusions of the study have important policy implications for less developed countries so that they could improve the R&D resources of their organizations by attracting foreign organizations through the establishment of institutions necessary for R&D cooperation.
