Inter-organizational collaboration has long been identified as a key to solving complex problems, including those related to CV. However, both studies and field experience show that collaboration is often fraught with pitfalls that hinder the creation of genuine CV projects. One of the reasons for this is that inter-organizational collaboration is not limited to a formal structure or a sequence of activities deployed within a project management logic. It is a complex process that revolves around a dynamic - specific to each collaboration - between individuals and organizations. The aim of this project is to: review the state of knowledge on inter-organizational collaboration in the context of CV from the perspective of the management discipline; produce a synthesis-critique to develop an initial analytical framework for the Cité de l'innovation circulaire de Victoriaville; identify the research angles to be prioritized to support the shift towards CV in Qc cities/territories.
