This study applies a micro-level perspective of organizational learning theory to a social constructivist approach to address relational learning information collaboration that takes into account a strategic perspective involving the creation of collective knowledge to demonstrate the role of organizational learning through project-based organizations. , which attest to the duality of the legal framework of these organizations, and how such circumstances affect functioning private universities in the Autonomous Communities to maintain long-term ties with their partners for sustainable development. To test the study hypotheses, the survey was disseminated to 180 individuals in various targeted private universities from a total population of 1400 from private universities, which carry out their operations through joint projects. After eliminating 12 surveys with incorrect answers, we were able to include 168 in our statistical analysis. In addition, value creation appears to play a partial mediating role between organizational learning and sustainable Strategic success. In addition, exploratory intent demonstrates a significant mediation role in inter-organizational learning and the ability to maintain long-term relationships with partners as a positive effect of partner diversity as a moderate factor. The findings revealed that knowledge integration significantly associated with strategic success, organizational culture significantly associated with strategic success, competences and skills significantly associated with strategic success, and finallyteam cooperation significantly associated with strategic success.
