Description: Links between universities and firms (U-F) have been developed in a process in which universities have transformed the arena in which they carry out their missions and firms have internalized the need for cooperation in order to strengthen their R&D, with the idea of developing new products and processes in the context of the innovation economy. The aim of this paper is to analyze the factors affecting knowledge links among industry and scientific fields across Mexico’s technological sectors. According to our estimations, using a negative binomial model based on 959 USPTO Mexican patents granted from 1980 to 2013, and using the scientific references cited in the patents as a dependent variable, we found that a greater propensity toward industry and science links is positively associated with the international mobility of inventors, previous technological knowledge, technological knowledge diffusion, science-intensive technological sectors, and larger inventor team size, but negatively associated with technological collaboration.
