Abstract: The issue of success measurement for cooperations is analyzed from a situational and objectives-based point of view. Objectives for the cooperation are divided into economical, technological and people-oriented dimensions. An explorative study is used for identifying these objectives. They can be either project or relationship oriented. In comparing the objectives of multiple partners, four cases of relationship of partners| objectives are distinguished. Possible implications for success measurement are discussed and areas for future research are addressed.
Keywords: R&D cooperation; objectives; technology transfer; research and development; performance measurement; success factors.
