Collaboration between industry and science is considered one of the most important aspects of the innovation system. Innovation capability being crucially linked with the level of communication between scientific institutions and industry, it is important to understand why and how intensively companies collaborate with scientists, and how they rate such collaboration. The present paper explores how motives for collaboration and company approach to innovation and technology influence collaboration with scientists. The paper also examines differences among small, medium sized and large companies. Since collaboration between science and industry is expected to have a positive impact on a company’s innovation capabilities, we explored how selected innovation indicators are affected by collaboration.
