This paper uses the panel data of 55 universities from 2015 to 2017 in China as research objects to analyze and reveal how university-industry collaboration (UIC) is influenced by its breadth and depth. The Empirical results show: There is an inverted U-shaped relationship between the breadth of UIC channels and the scientific research performance of universities; There is a positive correlation between the depth of UIC channels and the research performance of universities; The depth of industry-university cooperation channels can weaken the inverted U-shaped relationship between breadth and research performance of colleges and universities, making it become a positive correlation. The findings provide a theoretical reference for universities to optimize their collaboration strategy.
