Resumen


Abstract: The linkage between Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) and the productive sector becomes relevant because the HEIs, as generators of knowledge, have had the task of carrying out scientific research, technological development (R&D) and innovation projects. Previous research has analyzed the universityenterprise linkage through the results of joint work or the number of contracts signed. However, research papers that measure the impact of university-enterprise in R&D and innovation in the Mexican context have not been found. Therefore, this paper analyzes and measures the impact of linkages between university and enterprise in R&D and innovation. The methodological design was based on the application of surveys to executives in 40 science and technology enterprises in the state of Aguascalientes. Finally, the results showed that such linkages had a positive and significant impact on R&D and innovation. Key words: linkage between university and enterprise, research and development (R&D), innovation.
