The determinants of knowledge transfer from universities to tourism companies - a conceptual model and research propositions

Marcin Olszewski


Acquiring and generating knowledge for product development is critical for the competitiveness of both tourism destinations and enterprises. The relationships between universities and companies can be treated as weak ties, and therefore be efficient for knowledge sharing, and to trigger innovativeness. The objective of the paper is to create a conceptual model of determinants of knowledge transfer from academia to tourism companies. On the basis of the literature study the research propositions were identified. It is argued that the utilisation of academic knowledge is affected by both the absorptive capacity of enterprises, and fit between companies and universities.
