The vision of collaboration between government, academia and industry is one of great opportunity. Each stakeholder brings to the table talent, resources and differentiated perspectives that, together, create a robust whole in addressing problems and projects. Unfortunately, great opportunities do not always turn into reality. Collaboration successes between government, academia and industry are, sadly, few and far between. This paper explores issues associated with government, academia and industry collaboration with special attention to the nature and role of linkages with respect to knowledge management, as well as further elaboration of opportunities for synergism while at the same time exposing the difficulties. An ongoing project is used as a case in point to illustrate issues and provide a baseline for recommendations including knowledge management; special focus is given to cooperative knowledge creation and exchange
