International research collaborations are widespread, but few have studied those that reach the scale and scope of what we call international university research ventures (IURVs),
in which universities set up a formal and organizationally consolidated research relationship in a foreign country. This presentation proposes an explanation for the phenomenon of their
emergence with different forms by means of an institutionalization framework. After reporting on the scale of IURVs through analysis of websites of the 108 research extensive
universities in the US, the presentation reports on five case studies were conducted of IURVs in the countries with the largest number of IURVs involving US universities: China and Singapore.
The results show that the emergence of IURVs depends on the specific connection between the role of government and availability of resources with the realization of mutual benefits,
which lead to different patterns of institutionalization.
Institutionalization is not a benefit without limits; nevertheless, an institutionalized structure may be necessary if ambitious research-driven goals are to be achieved.
