In recent years, the industrial technology innovation strategic alliance has developed rapidly in
China, but there are generally problems such as low stability and low operating efficiency. How to improve
the stability of industrial technology innovation strategic alliance is an urgent problem to be solved. Based
on the background of innovation-driven development strategy in China, this paper explores the influence
of relational capital on the stability of industrial technology innovation strategic alliance and the adjustment
effect of fairness perception in this relationship through questionnaires and statistical analysis. Results
are as follows: Relational capital has a positive effect on the stability of industrial technology innovation
strategic alliance. Fairness perception plays a regulatory role in the relationship between relational capital
and the stability of industrial technology innovation strategic alliance. The research results can not only
help to expand the field of alliance stability research, but also provide a reference for improving the
stability management level of industrial technology innovation strategic alliance.
