UIIN Good Practice Case Studies

UIIN has published its first edition of the UIIN Good Practice Series. This study is a UIIN initiative, that was developed to support, develop and strengthen the interaction between Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) and business. The objective of the series is to highlight a wide variety of cases in different settings. As every environment is different (country, culture, stage of development) UIIN collects good practices on various subjects and levels, including organisational, departmental and project level. Presenting cases with diverse stages of development, types of interaction (collaboration in R&D, entrepreneurship), and types of activity (operational activities, structures and approaches) it allows readers to get new impetus on how to foster university-industry interaction in their own organisation.

2014 Good Practice Event Entrepreneurial Universities

Following the recent publication of the UIIN Good Practice Case Study Series, and both its successful University- Industry Interaction Conference 2013 in the Netherlands (338 participants from 48 countries) and the upcoming 2014 conference in April 2014, UIIN and the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (UPM) are organizing the 2014 Entrepreneurial Universities Good Practice Event on ‘Driving Innovation and Entrepreneurship’. With the current financial crisis, youth unemployment and university budget cuts across Europe and beyond, the need for cooperation and interaction between university and industry has never been more keenly felt.

The UIIN Good Practice event will focus on good practice cases in both Europe, as well as on a global level on entrepreneurial Universities. Highlighting both well-known cases, as well as the hidden treasures, and allowing both the presenters as well as the participants to network, share knowledge and ideas on Entrepreneurial Universities. The event also allows for a discussing on future joint proposals in the Horizon2020 and Erasmus+ programmes.

The participants of the event are offered with a wide variety of benefits, in addition to the sharing of knowledge on best practices, the participants will benefit from:

• Getting in contact with potential new partners for Erasmus+ or Horizon2020 projects

• Publication of case studies in the UIIN Case Study Series

• Presentation of the participant’s institution

• Getting to know a management framework for the implementation of the instruments learned about during the event
