The aim of this report is to use the Community Innovation Survey 4 (CIS4) to explore some different questions about the ways in which companies collaborate with the research base and / or use it as a source of information. This work makes use of simple statistical analysis, rather than any complex econometric models, but this simple analysis is appropriate for the immediate task in hand. In George Shackle’s theory, the entrepreneur is one who enjoys exploring whether there is anything to be found in hitherto neglected combinations. It is that 'exploratory spirit' which motivates the new work in this paper.
