Networking

Networking

At our network meetings, we bring together companies and researchers from our universities. These meetings serve to deepen existing partnerships and to establish new contacts.

Our meetings usually focus on a specific topic area and consist of short presentations followed by a discussion or personal exchange in smaller groups. We use these meetings to form consortia for joint research projects and to discuss the needs of the labour market. Additionally, they serve to improve our educational programmes, to establish specific advanced training offers, and to initiate joint teaching activities.
