Production is a globally distributed survey that aims to understand the challenges and benefits of Industry-Academy Collaboration (IAC) in software engineering. It aims to function as a large-scale research family based on continuous and independent replication in different countries.

Production emerged as a doctoral thesis by researcher Tâmara Dallegrave from POLI-UPE/ECOMPE. It was designed to be replicated in several countries with different contexts, we currently have the contribution of researchers from Brazil and Poland

When replicating the surveys, we will collect data incrementally, considering the cultural diversity of companies, academies and the countries where they will be replicated. Each replication can bring a significant number of findings to the area, raising key points about the global Industry-Academy collaboration.
