University-industry collaboration is an interdisciplinary and multifaceted approach that aims to build a knowledge stock and improve through interaction by promoting information and technology exchange between higher education systems and the industry. University and industry have different motivations specific to their own interests. For instance, accessing to funding and empirical data from sector, development of research and teaching operations, and reputation enhancement are main motivations for universities, whereas accessing the scientific and technological knowledge, tapping to qualified personnel, gaining access to equipment and facilities of university, gaining benefit to public funding, decreasing R & D costs, and providing knowledge sharing with present personnel are the typical motivations of industry. In this chapter, the role of stakeholders in university-industry collaboration and their interactions were explained. As both partners have different aims and motivations, the potential benefits and challenges for both partners were mentioned. Then, the crucial points to take into consideration for successful collaboration were emphasized, and the importance of technology transfer offices (TTOs) on this collaboration was more detailed. In the light of this information, recommendations for future interactions were presented.
