At UIIN, we believe in cocreating the future.
Together with our global community we advance the field of university-industry engagement to drive innovation.
Since 2012, we have grown to a knowledge leader on university-industry engagement, entrepreneurial & engaged universities and knowledge transfer. We are dedicated to supporting our global community of university and industry professionals, to advance the future of higher education institutions and their impact on society. We conduct research, organise events and provide training and consultancy services to our community of 80+ organisational and 500+ individual members.
Our way of working
We actively advance the field of university-industry collaboration through conducting large-scale research projects funded by national and international governments. Similarly, we support the development of university and industry professionals through delivering training for university leadership, academics and professional staff operating at the interface of higher education and industry, to enable them to enhance their collaboration and drive cultural change.
Our in-depth understanding and insights generated through our research form the foundation of our consultancy projects to provide universities, industry and government with concrete actions and recommendations to support their external engagement activities and strategies. Finally, through our events and online platform we enable our community to share knowledge, network with peers and form new relationships across the globe.
