This paper presents the findings from an initial phase of a long-term research program to investigate successful modes of university-industry collaboration in information system (IS) research. This initial phase consisted of in-depth interviews with nine experienced IS researchers. Findings revealed that researchers have very differing individual preferences regarding the ideal set up of collaborative research projects, and these varying approaches are discussed here. Findings regarding the
popularity among both researchers and industry partners of various research output formats are also presented.
