Strategic partnerships at Natural Sciences

A strategic partnership provides more opportunities for valuable collaboration between your business and our researchers.

A strategic partnership is mutually binding and value-creating collaboration that typically runs over a number of years. A partnership can include several elements: student projects and internships, research collaboration and promotional activities that can strengthen recruitment for your business.

Both parties regularly evaluate the collaboration and can implement new initiatives and adapt elements in the agreement.  

If you see potential in a strategic partnership between Natural Sciences and your business, you are welcome to contact the faculty's contact for business collaboration to learn more.
