Abstract: In accordance to the classification guidance scheme of China’s higher education policy, Baise University is an industry based public university in China. As a typical knowledge-intensive organization, knowledge is the core resource of the University. Significantly, the development of the university lies in the application of knowledge and creation of innovation through R&D to meet the needs of the industries. Hence, introducing knowledge management (KM) is one of the key strategies to enhance the competitiveness of the Baise University. This qualitative in-depth interview research seeks the insight into the practical knowledge sharing, transfer and creation experiences among participants who have been purposively selected to answer 5 important research questions on (1) the common KM procedures in the university; (2) enablers of effective knowledge creation at Baise University; (3) challenges encountered in the implementation of KM practices; (4) improvement in terms of knowledge sharing and transfer to enhance university and industry performances and (5) recommendations for successfully implementation of KM at the industry-based Baise University. Using content analysis, the findings revealed a low readiness in KM practices particularly in terms of the acquisition and sharing of knowledge in the university. In addition, it indicated a lack of KM understanding as well as inadequate KM infrastructure within and beyond the university. Last but not least, a clear indication of a lack in top management commitment to the introduction and implementation of the KM system on institutional levels. These barriers adversely affected the development of critical knowledge which enablers’ greater UI interactions and collaborations.to build competitive advantages for both the HEI and the industries. Importantly, this study recommended the management of the university to develop clear KM policies to make the transformation feasible and gain the necessary supports for KM as a strategic change. Additionally, the study proposed the establishment of an integrated digital knowledge platform that is user friendly for the university and industry to enhance knowledge sharing and transfer purposes. Lastly but not least, to propel the concept of UI interaction and collaboration to optimize the KM efforts to achieve higher development and innovation in a knowledge management and university-industry collaboration (KMUI) ecological environment. The efforts of this study is thus crucial to set new benchmark for the industry based Baise University.
