Joint research takes its place as a major innovation process. The aim is to build relationships through which to gain access to external sources of high technology (or other assets) and their integration into the products and services of business organizations.
The establishment and operation of Competence Centers in our country, such as QUASAR, plays a leading role in planning, structuring and negotiating these relationships with universities, small high-tech companies, mid-market companies and large companies. The proper development of the business models of the Centers of Competence plays an essential role in this direction
The purpose of this study is to present the impact of business models on two dimensions of joint research: cooperation as an alternative to successful relationships and business models as an effective tool for assessing the portfolio of opportunities and risk allocation.
