About the document

Table of contents

The Programme for Collaboration is the overarching strategic document of the University for structured collaboration with other elements of society. The objective of the Programme for Collaboration is to stimulate, strengthen and develop the University’s collaborative ventures with society and to complement the collaborative work initiated and conducted at the level of the faculties and disciplinary domains. A handful of university-wide priority areas of intervention are specified. In order to achieve successful execution and cohesive implementation of the Programme for Collaboration, staff and students must pursue and further develop collaborative ventures with professional support within innovation, communication, contract education, and different forms of contact with society. To this end, the University must develop proactive support structures that facilitate and encourage individual initiatives. The responsibility for collaboration in a broad sense must rest with the disciplinary domains and faculties.
