The purpose of this paper is to study industry-academia interactions in strategic logistics, OM and SCM research projects. The paper is based on an in-depth retrospective analysis of eight research projects performed in collaboration with industry. Methodology combines single and cross-case analysis. Results point out the importance of industry-academia dialogue and co-construction at each step of a research project. They provide some guidelines to improve the management of such projects and the quality of their outputs for both parties. We conclude by suggesting some issues to deepen dialogue and enrich co-construction in strategic logistics, OM and SCM research projects.
