Description Purpose: The study explored the impact of institutional factors have on the university-industry knowledge exchange based on the Sri Lankan university system.
Methodology: The study is quantitative and explanatory by nature and it applied the deductive method and questionnaire survey strategy. The study conducted with minimum interference of researcher and individual academics is the unit of analysis. The types of knowledge interaction, university-industry knowledge exchange, and institutional factors were the independent, dependent and moderating variables respectively. A Structural Equation Model is deployed on collected data to explore the moderating impact of the institutional factor on the university-industry knowledge exchange.
Implications: It implies that the level of joint, contract research activities, human resource mobility, and training of academic staff are largely wider on the conducive environment and sophisticated facilities of the university.
Main Findings: First, study evidence that there are statistically significant impacts of type of interactions and institutional factors on university-industry knowledge exchange.  Further, the study confirmed the moderating power of institutional factors over the knowledge exchange process.
Novelty: There is a lack of research literature discussing the moderating effect of institutional factors on the university-industry knowledge exchange process.
