Abstract Innovation rarely occurs in isolation, and firms increasingly exploit cooperation strategies to increase their innovation propensity and performance. Empirical research concentrating on the breadth of cooperation practices, as well as the variety of objectives pursued in the context of innovation strategies remains scarce, and even more so for emerging economies. This paper aims to contribute to this literature stream by providing empirical evidence on the impact of the breadth of cooperation and innovation goals on innovation performance in Turkey. Results show that having six types of cooperation leads to the highest marginal effects on the innovation success while the probability to innovate is more determined by the objectives pursued rather than by cooperation itself.
