The collaboration issues on research and development (R&D) projects are getting critical. Shorten time-to-market (TTM) of new product is crucial competency of high-tech industries. However, lacks of post-project review, real-time communication and information sharing make barriers to reduce TTM. This would lead to downcast competition in the globalization. In this research, a concurrent knowledge learning (CKL) model is proposed to enhance R&D project collaboration. With the CKL model, R&D collaboration could be improved via the concurrent knowledge reusability and the collaboration mechanism among partners.
