Resumen

La literatura no niega la relevancia del capital humano y la colaboración con las universi- dades en vistas a la innovación en el sector de hostelería, pero la evidencia empírica de este enlace es insuficiente por lo que se refiere a Turquía. Este trabajo pretende contribuir al conocimiento en esta área mediante el empleo de datos generados a través de una encuesta hecha en la provincia de Mugla, uno de los destinos turísticos más atractivos de Turquía. El objetivo de este trabajo es investigar los efectos del capital humano y la colaboración con instituciones académicas en el nivel de innovación de las empresas de hostelería. Los resultados de los datos del estudio y la investigación empírica de los modelos logit y probit econométricos indican que estos factores son realmente los que propician la innovación en las empresas de hostelería.
