Drawing on the theory of planned behavior, this study investigates the impact of academics' perception of university context on their engagement with industry via the mediation of academics' intention to industrial collaborations. The third mission and supportive policy were put forward as two university influence factors. From analysis results of 564 questionnaire responses, we found that academics' perception of university context had significant effect on academic engagement. In addition, the relationship between university mission, supportive policy and academics' industrial engagement were partially mediated by academics' intention to industrial collaboration.
Key words: University context / The third mission / Supportive policy / Academic engagement
