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 contributing to the development of society, promoting the exchange of knowledge and strengthening the quality of both research and education. Therefore, Umeå University strives to have well-developed forms of collaboration with, among others, trade and industry, the public and non-profit sectors.
