Intellectual output 2 is a deliverable in the PoliUniBus project (PROJECT NUMBER2019-1-UK01-KA203-062136). This IO is based on analysis of needs and current good practices carried out by each PoliUniBus project partner country (IO1), along with studies conducted by the project consortium. This IO outlines the key stakeholders in the policymakers-university-business collaboration, the key barriers and drivers in such collaboration, the main collaborative models, and the process itself. It also provides an overview of the existing digital solutions facilitating the collaboration and outlines their strengths and weaknesses. The proposed framework is based on the collaboration process model (its key stages) and follows the needs of the key stakeholders involved.
