Abstract: Today, the concept of open innovation and collaborative networks attracts great interest. Many organisations use collaborative networks. The success of the innovation of these networks is restricted to their alignment. Hence, this study aims to propose a strategic alignment model for collaborative open innovation networks. The Luftman strategic alignment framework was used as a reference model and was analysed using qualitative and quantitative approaches. In the qualitative part of the study, the meta-synthesis approach was used to find the factors, and then these factors were placed in proper categories using experts' ideas. Next, in the quantitative part, the chi-square test was used to analyse the hypothesis and the Friedman test was used to prioritise the concepts, dimensions, and categories. Finally, 42 concepts and 16 main categories were identified. Moreover, in addition to the six dimensions of the Luftman model, the research and development dimension was identified as an important dimension.
