University-Business Collaboration image

ISEW Club for Business Collaboration focuses on university - business relations and co-creation processes for establishing partnerships. We will also be sharing the cases gone bad and what lessons we learned from those. In addition to effective working, participants will have time for building their new network of professionals. ISEW Club for Business Collaboration takes place in November 7-9, 2018.


For the ISEW Club for Business Collaboration we invite advisors, specialists and managers working in the field of university – industry collaboration and knowledge transfer for an intensive workshop to share their expertise in e.g.

  • the role of university- business collaboration in universities’ strategy
  • incentivizing researchers to collaborative projects with companies
  • helping researchers in establishing company partnerships
  • supporting co-creation processes
  • developing hubs to increase co-operation
