Sažetak

Industry-science relationship is considered to be a very important
part of the innovation system and it represents one of the crucial
factors in national innovation capacity. Extant studies show that a
significant proportion of the products and processes that are
currently sold and used could not have been developed without
academic research. Both industry and academia can benefit
from this relationship. Research focus in this paper is on interactions
between science and the industry from the researchers'
point of view based on field study in Croatia. This paper seeks to
develop understanding of determinants of collaboration intensity
with industry and scientists' satisfaction in this relationship. It
explores scientists' motivations to collaborate and perceptions of
barriers for collaboration as well as how they perceive the other
side in this relationship. Research findings show strong scientist
interest in the collaboration with industry. Significant motives that
can explain their interest are intellectual challenge and additional
income. Scientists find more powerful obstacles in their internal
organizations than in external relationship with industry. They are
persuaded that industry is not as interested in collaboration as
they are. Less critical are those groups of scientists who have
already built closer working ties with industry.
