To provide the long term success of the relationships between innovative institutions - like universities, firms and intermediary institutions - has a key importance during the process of regional developments which developments are focused on the dynamisation of knowledge centres and increasing competitiveness. One of the elementary pillars is the long term co-operation between innovative institutions. In the case we focus on the success of co-operation, we ask two questions: How can we manage successfully the projects within the co-operation and how can we manage a co-operation containing range of projects? We are dealing in our research with the second one. We try to explore and present the economic results, benefits from the university-industrial R&D co-operation. Therefore, we analyze the approaches which describe the performance of the university-industrial co-operations, highlighted by the discrepancy of the different approaches. On the basis of our qualitative research we make a motion of the adaptability of the discrepancy resolving performance model.
