Abstract
R&D projects performed by the joint academia- business teams, become more popular. Both, academia and business have different organizational culture and different motivation to join the projects. The diffusion between the cultures is reasonable and brings significant benefits as well to the academia as to the business. In this article the following thesis is formulated: there are cultural differences between academia and business that significantly influence the success of the joint projects. Those differences should be taken into consideration while managing the projects and additional activities should be applied to ensure the project success. The article formulates the thesis, which the present cultural differences between science and business environments have significant influence at the further long-term cooperation. To confirm or negation the thesis the additional research and analysis are required. The project managers of jointly delivered projects should consider the differences in organizational culture of both science and business environments, and apply extra effort to ensure project success. Based on the theoretical analysis the success factors are defined. The good practices of the earlier projects are pointed out. The article proposes the inclusion of activities into the PMI project management to unify the project culture. (original abstract)
