Abstract: Many government policies have encouraged collaboration between the three worlds that were once very separate: the private and public research, business and/or industrial partners (as a structure for wealth creation) and education. All three, can cover virtuous circles to produce successful innovations. In this context, universities have extend their traditional roles or primary functions of education and research, to new one; entrepreneurship university or the knowledge based university are new approaches that give a new meaning and content to the traditional education role. They has change also, their business models on doing research and valorising the related results. The research aims to present an evaluation model for the university-industry collaboration in open innovation. The approach’s core consists of an ontology development based on reference review and creative common work of a research group of experts. The ontology dimensions and their characterization items were chosen based on university new role theory. Furthermore, the ontology structure and elements have contributed to the development of a questionnaire that could support a survey for the university-industry collaboration diagnosis (considering one university local, regional market) and it has been proofed as an effective support of the decision-making process when establishing a contract, project, or partnership with industrial or business organizations. The proposed evaluation model has been tested and validated through three practical case (universities) and the research results will be debated in this article.
