Research cooperation

Our researchers and teachers can help businesses and organisations with for example staff training, problem solving and evaluations. For more information, please contact the relevant department.

Contact us about your ideas for cooperation

Companies may need expert support in connection with organisational changes, organisations may need lecturers for staff trainings and public authorities may need help with independent studies and analyses.

Exampels on how we can cooperate

Contract research

The purpose of contract research is to produce new research results through cooperation between academia, business and the public sector. Contract research is a good way to get problems and issues scientifically analysed and developed.

Professional development

Contract education is a good way for businesses and organisations to strengthen the competence of their staff. The training is customized to the needs of the business/organisation. Contract education can be offered as a course, a series of seminars or in any custom-made format. Higher education credits can in some cases be awarded for contract education.

Expert consulting 

Expert consulting is a way for a client to use a scientist’s knowledge to solve a problem. In contrast to contract research, expert consulting relies primarily on already existing knowledge and techniques and is not intended to produce new research results.

Externally employed doctoral students

By hiring a doctoral student or offering current staff to become doctoral students, a business or organisation can gain access to the latest research through close cooperation with the University. The businesses or organisations can run a development project for new products, services and applications.
