External cooperation is seen by many to further innovation: in clusters, for open innovation, in innovation systems, or networks, just to name a few. If this is so, finding suitable partners is of strategic relevance. But our theoretical understanding of the matchmaking phenomena is limited with only few available studies and theories with little predictive value for managerial action. The aim of the special issue and workshop is to anchor match making in a deeper theoretical perspective and contribute to an ongoing discussion in academia and practice.This workshop discusses theoretical and empirical contributions to further our understanding of matchmaking, its processes as well as antecedents and success factors.
