Abstract: The main objectives of the research were to reveal the significance of innovative activity for Moldova's universities as a task with major implications for state development and to identify the factors that create obstacles to establishing a favorable climate for innovation activities. In order to achieve those objectives, some examples of innovative work experience of the European and US universities were brought; there were presented quantitative data expressing the contribution of university research to economic growth and employment. There were, also, presented and analyzed the results of two surveys: with State Agrarian University of Moldova (SAUM) students and with business representatives. Based on survey results and analysis of other activities performed by SAUM, in order to cooperate with business environment, there were formulated conclusions concerning the current state and possible directions of improving the innovation climate.
