Objectives: Prior studies failed to prove interactions between need and activity among players of university-industry collaborative activities. This study proved these interactions, based on needs, engagements, and outcomes of universityindustry collaborative activities. Methods/Statistical Analysis: The needs are composed of network reinforcement, securing information and knowledge, and contributing to intra-/extra-mural utilization of outcomes. The engagements are composed of start-up revitalization for intellectual property creation and engagement in knowledge dissemination. And the outcomes are composed of learning about resource acquisition and clients’ business process. PLS statistical tool was used for data analyses for which 44 data sample were collected. Findings: The study results can be summarized as following. First, the needs for securing information and knowledge have positive effects on the engagement in universityindustry collaborative activities. Second, the needs for intra-/extra-mural contribution have positive effects on their engagements in knowledge dissemination. Third, the increase in engagement has positive effects on outcomes. Fourth, the increase in engagement in knowledge dissemination improves the outcomes of learning about resource acquisition and of clients’ business process. Application/Improvements: This study found out the outcomes and their influencing factors of university-industry collaborative activities. This study can contribute to deciding which needs should be paid extra attention to by main players.
