As information is increasingly becoming an important input to the production process, more studies about the demand of information by the industrial sector are needed. This paper analyses two studies carried on within a period of 25 years, through the cooperation between the public and private sectors. The similarities and the differences between them are presented, and the main information demanded by the industrial sector revealed by each one are stressed.
