Collaboration and innovation

Through collaboration, we utilise both our own and our partners' strengths to improve the quality of education and research. By striving for a creative environment where we build new knowledge and benefit from each other's know-how, we also contribute to the development of society.

Collaboration is a way of promoting societal development and strengthening the quality of both research and education. It can, for example, help to develop new ways of thinking, technology, processes and products. In addition, it gives us a valuable influx of ideas, needs and experiences. That is why it is important that we at Umeå University have well-developed forms of collaboration with, e.g., industry and trade, the public and non-profit sectors.

Support for collaborative elements in education

The Research Support and Collaboration Office is Umeå University's central support when it comes to collaboration matters in both education and research, as well as issues concerning research funding.

For example, we can help you with:

  • establishing collaboration models in educational programmes
  • commissioned training
  • research applications
  • meeting places and useful contacts, etc.

Support for innovation and dissemination

At Umeå University, collaboration and innovation are well integrated in both education and research. We encourage researchers, employees and students to find ways to disseminate their knowledge and research results so that they benefit people and society.
