This workshop explores how universities achieve excellence in university business collaboration. The aim is to share knowledge and experiences and then highlight the practical steps you can take to improve your university collaboration with business.
Drawing on published research, good practice case studies and experiences from across the world, you will better understand the key issues faced in university-business cooperation, the most important supporting mechanisms, and how to overcome the typical obstacles that stand in the way of collaboration. Additionally, you will create a Personal Action Plan to apply in your institution, ensuring a practical impact of the knowledge gained at the workshop.
The workshop has been devised to support university managers, leaders, administrators, professionals in the interface with industry, academics and researchers who are seeking improvements in their performance and impact.
As a workshop participant you will receive a workshop certificate, issued by the University Industry Innovation Network and signed by the workshop facilitators.
