Supporting collaboration with external organisations
Do you need an external partner for your project? Are you looking for funding to begin a collaboration with the potential to contribute to societal benefit? Or perhaps you have questions related to rights and agreements?
The Innovation Partnership Office is offering various opportunities for you to come in contact with potential partners outside of academia, all based on your needs and interests. These may be players from the private, public or non-profit sector. You can get help in finding funding opportunities, honing your application, shaping your collaborative project, and formulating proper agreements.
The goal is simple – to make it easier for you to get started with various forms of collaborative projects that not only contribute to societal benefit, but also strengthen your research, help you grow in your role as teacher, and improve your career opportunities.
What do you need?
- Develop networks and a plan for your collaboration.
- Find the right funding for your collaboration.
C. Collaboration agreement
Collaborating with companies and other organisations can give your research wings. But, make sure that you exercise your rights. There is a lot to think about at all stages of the collaboration – before, during and after.
It is important to discuss how the collaboration should be structured. “What does each individual want to achieve, what are you going to share, and what will happen with your research results once the collaboration ends?”
The Innovation Partnership Office can provide advice about suitable forms of agreements and compensation models, and can help you to create a joint declaration of intent.
D. Support for strategic initiatives
The Innovation Partnership Office also supports the university management and the management of the disciplinary domains and faculties in strategic collaboration initiatives.
