The aim of this survey conducted by the Italian Association for industrial research (Airi), which is also the Italian member of the Federation of European Industrial Cooperative Research Organisations (FEICRO), was to determine the current state of cooperative research in Italy. This refers to the situation where several companies jointly request external research centres to carry out research to find solutions to technical problems common to them all. Different questionnaires were sent to each category of respondents: R&D centres, industrial and technological research promotion organisations, and trade organisations. The survey aimed to : (i) verify the existence of centres which carry out and promote cooperative research; (ii) identify existing skills and availability; (iii) examine actual past experience and the potential and perspectives for the future development of cooperative research.
