Abstract: This paper explores the role played by the incentive system in promoting/discouraging and shaping university-industry collaborations. We argue that the characteristics of the incentive system acts at three levels (micro, meso and macro), and that it is a critical for understanding the propensity of firms and universities to collaborate each other, as well as the specific type of collaborative linkages they tend to establish. This study is based on original data collected through a case study in the biotechnology sector of Mexico, which considered three main actors: a biotechnology firm, a research institute in biotechnology at the university, and the responsible directors for science and technology policy at the main government council supporting S&T in Mexico.
