Centre of Expertise
Creating public-private partnerships
talk by: Pieter Moerman (Platform of Science and Technology)
This talk covers the lessons learned during the six-year development of the s-called Centres for Expertise, public-private partnerships between universities of applied Science and businesses. Focus of these partnerships are innovating education programs, combining research and education, and focus on valorisation and entrepreneurship. Today, more than 4500 businesses are involved, with the majority of education institutions, bringing the number of Centres to about 30.
