Wen B, van Vierrsen W, van der Zouwen M, Horlings E, Van Den Besselaar P. Motivations behind cross-boundary collaboration. Oral presentation at 2017 SciTS Conference. Clearwater Beach, FL. Jun 13, 2017. Collaborations Across Academia, Industry, And Government. Online at:

If cross-boundary collaboration is necessary to tackle today’s grand challenges, the question becomes what motivations make researchers and practitioners to engage in cross-discipline and cross-sectoral collaboration. Previous research focused mainly on collaboration between researchers, and this study adds to this the understanding of collaboration between a variety of professionals other than only researchers. From this we may understand better the conditions for efficient cross-boundary collaboration.
