On 11 March 2021, the Policy Learning Platform hosted a e-workshop on University-industry collaboration.
University-industry collaboration is emerging as a critical component of the innovation process. There are many benefits to enhancing collaborative innovation activities between universities (public laboratories, research institutes and higher education institutions) and industry (private companies). The benefits include:
- to achieve a critical mass in research activities,
- to overcome fragmentation caused by distance and a smaller resource base,
- to bring together different perspectives, experience, skills and knowledge,
- to break down specialist silos and restrictive organisational boundaries,
- and to manage risks associated with R&D.
Against this backdrop, the event aimed to provide an overview of the latest policy developments, explore effective regional policies for university-industry collaboration and allowed participants to network in groups.
Around 80 participants attended this event. You can watch the recording below, as well as access the presentations. A summary of the key take-aways and further resources can be downloaded here.
