The aim of this research is to present a provincial level assessment of Turkey in terms of creating an effective university-industry collaboration that converts academic knowledge produced in universities to added-value in industry. University-industry collaboration potential of 26 regions by using Classification of Statistical Region Units and 81 provinces in Turkey is evaluated. Data Envelopment Analysis, Free Disposal Hull Analysis and Super Efficiency Measurement methods are used in order to measure the efficiency of regions/provinces, identify reference provinces for inefficient regions/provinces and rank the efficient regions/provinces in terms of university-industry collaboration. In the result of the study, the efficiencies of the regions/provinces in Turkey in terms of university and industrial potential are calculated, the region/province references for inefficient region/provinces are determined and regions/provinces are ranked by their university and industry potential.
