Entrepreneurship & Engineering Innovation
12 MSc and 6 PhD engineering students from six different universities were engaged in design thinking session and were offered to tackle a challenge of creating a communication channel effectively bridging together international IT company (Industry partner), customers and partners) and academia in the new paradigm of Digital Business Framework.
Key ideas generated by students referred to creating a web-portal and mobile application which will provide social-media type of communication between Industry and Academia.
This platform will allow businesses to deploy information about ongoing research projects, calls for participation for academia and in its turn could identify opportunities to join industry projects, position its areas of expertise and get better involved in understanding trends for educating future of workforce. The framework describes here the main steps towards stable, successful, long-term university-industry cooperation. The framework is industry-oriented, meaning that the process is initiated by the enterprise partner.
The success factors that the industry partner needs to consider are also defined.
