Abstract

This paper reports the descriptive statistics of Aalborg University’s database of university-industry collaborations where funding is involved from 2008 to 2011. In the past years there has been an increased focus on the role of universities in the regional economic development by making universities focus more on the so-called third mission activities. The purpose of this paper is to describe point of departure and the development in the collaborations between researchers from Aalborg University and local industry partners. The paper is only concerned with collaborations based on contractual agreements with companies in the Northern Jutland region of Denmark. The paper illustrates a series of potential benefits, barriers and lastly also speculates on how the registration of student-company collaboration could be achieved successfully.

Keywords: University-industry collaboration, Northern Denmark, descriptive statistics
