Getting universities and business closer: new study and upcoming conference
In June 2014 the Commission has released a study on how to measure the impact of university-business cooperation, highlighting the numerous benefits that can be gained from such collaboration: strengthening levels of human capital, stimulating entrepreneurship, reinforcing knowledge exchange and innovation or raising organisations’ profiles. The study is also accompanied by numerous interesting case studies. On the same theme, the University-Business Forum will take place on 2-3 October in Rome, Italy entitled “Universities, Businesses & Co.: Together we can. Strategic Inter-sectorial Partnerships for Economic and Social Change and Growth”.
