INTERACT Symposium 2018: 

The Role of University Strategies for Interaction with Industry

The aim of the symposium is to explore how we can better understand the role of university strategies in general and strategies for increased collaborations with the private sector in particular. Speakers and participants are invited to discuss the focus on collaboration, technology and knowledge transfer, and how strategies are developed at the university to respond to challenges and achieve strategic goals. Speakers will also provide an overview of state-of-the art methodologies that can be used to study the role of the strategic management at the university for addressing the competitive conditions and opportunities for growth. Participants are invited to contribute with their insights and questions to inspire both discussions at the symposium and subsequent research in the project.
