KTU - Consortium Meeting, Monitoring Visit and Study Visit, November 10-13, 2014

The meeting provided an important platform for the partners to address key issues related to project implementation and administration. In addition, the meeting also included a study visit for Knowledge Transfer Units at Partner Country Universities in Ukraine. Main topics presented by KTH as Host University included cooperation with industry and society (structure and instruments), business liaison and innovation. Furthermore, the KTH Grants Office, open labs as new instruments for cooperation in life sciences and courses on demand for external partners were presented to partners from Ukraine.

The KTU project aims at creating sustainable relationships between universities and the economy in Ukraine. With the support of the EU partners from Austria, Hungary, Spain and Sweden, the partner country universities in Ukraine have developed strategies for Knowledge Transfer Units. Four out of six PCU have already established Knowledge Transfer Units; a portfolio of services and tools is currently being developed and further capacity development measures for current and future KTU staff are underway. By working jointly on pilot projects, universities and enterprises will develop direct and sustainable relationships that are expected to contribute to the development of both universities and the national economy.

We are looking forward to our further collaboration on this project with all our partners!
