Abstract [en]

Purpose – The purpose is to develop a work-integrated learning (WIL) model for university-society research collaboration facilitating societal impact toward short lag yet sustainable societal impact for local innovation. Design/methodology/approach – The methodology applied was engaged scholarship based on a WIL approach involving a network of collaborating partners from different sectors of society and cross-disciplinary university researchers. Mixed data collection methods were applied. Findings – Conceptualization of university-society research collaboration for local innovation is presented asa WIL model including the elements of continuity and commitment, coordination, communication andrelationships, trust, courage and creativity and co-creation opportunities. Short lag societal impact as local innovation was identified as product and process innovations. Research limitations/implications – Further validation of the model is encouraged for the model to beviable in various contexts and to generate different kinds of societal impact. Practical implications – The model may act as a governing tool for project management to facilitate cocreative and short lag societal impact for local innovation to ensure that engaged and learning activities are membedded in the collaborative process. Social implications – The model has implications for inclusiveness and co-creation fostering transparency, respect and mutuality in university-society research collaboration and to equate both academic and practiceknowledge.Originality/value – The conclusions drawn support the understanding of a WIL approach practicing engaged scholarship in research collaborations. The main theoretical and practical contributions of the article are the conceptual model for university-society research collaboration generating short lag societal implications and local innovation.
