Context: Governments are providing more and more support
for academia-industry collaborations for industry led research
and innovation via Cooperative Research Centers (CRC). It is
important to understand the processes and practices of such
programs for transferring scientific R&D to innovation. Goal:
We aimed at empirically investigating the processes and
practices implemented in the context of one of the Australian
CRCs, aimed at transferring big data research to innovative
software solutions for national security. Method: We applied
case study method and collected and analyzed data from 17
interviews and observations of the participants of the studied
CRC program. Findings: We present the innovation process
implemented in the studied CRC. We particularly highlight the
practices used to involve end-users in the innovation process.
We further elaborate on the challenges of running this
collaborative model for software technology innovation
