Abstract

This presentation reports on evidence for the existence of collaborative behaviour in research and development gleaned from the 2004/05 survey of inputs into research and experimental development (R&D). The study compares this finding with previous results on the same phenomenon that were obtained in the 2000 innovation survey of the University of Pretoria. The results of R&D collaboration are examined by sector and size and provide encouraging evidence regarding the vitality of the system of innovation.
