School of Management collaborations
From the very outset BTH has always been particular to nurture close collaboration between the University and the community and this collaboration has taken place on all levels, both in education and research.
For the students it is a case of being able to work with assignments or degree projects that are based on real problems. There are no ready-made answers, which naturally means that the students feel close to reality. Within research there are many collaborative projects with both industry and the public sector. In these projects it is also common that industry is involved in the funding, says Stefan Östholm.
Co-operation with industry takes many forms and there is potential for BTH to be of tangible benefit to the external world, not just in the region but also globally.
