The fact that companies are located on campus and thus live next door to researchers, students and other companies adds an extra dimension to the University’s focus on collaborating with its constituency in terms of both research and education.
The specific aim of collaborating with the business community through businesses located on campus is:
- to promote, enhance and utilise binding collaboration between the University and the business community
- to enable the University’s knowledge to become influential in the outside world
- to ensure practical and theoretical contributions from collaborative companies
- to support business development by promoting its initiatives in establishing start-ups and promoting business incubation
