Research collaboration and innovation

Collaboration makes use of our own and our partners' strengths and contributes to the quality of both education and research. Therefore, Umeå University strives to have well-developed forms of cooperation with, among others, business, the public and non-profit sectors.

In addition to promoting the exchange of knowledge between us and others, collaboration is a way of contributing to social development. Do you want help along the way in terms of research collaboration and utilisation? Feel free to click on.
