University-industry research cooperation projects (UIRCs) appear to be a well-explored phenomenon in the field of business research that has been illustrated from different perspectives. However, some of the questions raised by this research are still not addressed adequately. Despite the call for closing important gaps of interests since the early phases of UIRC research, it seems that questions addressed by UIRC research have circled around similar, mostly structural aspects ever since, which has led to severe redundancies within the body research. Our literature review sheds light onto methodological and topic-related redundancies and research gaps in UIRC research and gives implications for further research to close them.
