This chapter reports an exploratory investigation into inter-disciplinary Mode 1 research occurring between university-based U.K. business schools and other local academic departments: an arena that has not received sufficient attention in the business school literature. To this end, reported patterns of interdepartmental research collaboration are first examined. Findings suggest that, except for economics, the number of reported ‘high collaboration’ areas appears to be modest. Second, as a strategic exemplar, research interaction between business schools and medical schools is further examined via an institutional audit. Two distinct subgroups of ‘collaborative’ and ‘stand alone’ business schools are reported. Finally, two mini case studies of collaborative interaction between business schools and medical schools are presented to uncover the conditions and processes accompanying collaborative research relations. This exploratory study concludes by elaborating a forward-looking research agenda in this important area, which has so far been neglected in the business school academic literature.
