Collaboration and innovation

Our collaboration utilises our own strengths and those of all our collaborating partners and improves the quality of both education and research.

The vision document Umeå University 2020 – Vision and objectives stresses that collaboration creates development and improves quality. The university must therefore have well-developed forms of regional and international collaboration with industry and commerce, the public sector and selected partner universities.

A strong environment for research and education coupled with a professional system that supports innovation contribute to the development of society.
