Research collaboration

Our researchers and teachers can help businesses and organisations with staff training, problem solving, and evaluations.

Contact us with your suggestions 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.

For more information, please contact the relevant department.

Examples of how we can cooperate

Contract research

The purpose of contract research is to produce new research results through cooperation between academia, the private sector, 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 skills of their staff. Training can be customized to the needs of the business/organisation. Contract education can be offered as a course, a series of seminars, or in any customized 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. Businesses or organisations can run a development project for new products, services, and applications.
