Strategic partnerships

A strategic partnership offers many opportunities for long-term and valuable collaboration between your enterprise and our researchers.

The Faculty of Technical Sciences wants to establish long-term strategic partnerships with selected national and international partners.

Strategic partnerships can be concluded with companies, organisations and government agencies and institutions, and they usually run over several years. The agreement has to help the partners develop close collaboration on research, education and innovation, etc.

Ongoing development opportunities

One element in the agreement is that the partners regularly meet at management level to take stock of the existing collaboration, and identify any new opportunities for collaboration that may arise.

If you can see potential in entering into a strategic partnership with us, contact the Faculty's business liaison officer to find out more.
