Strategic partnerships

Science and Technology has a strong tradition for entering into close strategic collaborative agreements with selected partners in Denmark and abroad.

A strategic partnership is a mutually binding and value-creating collaboration that typically runs for several years. A partnership can include a number of elements, such as student projects and internships, research collaborations, and promotional activities that can strengthen recruitment to the company.

Both parties regularly evaluate the collaboration, and can implement new initiatives and adjust their efforts in the agreement.

If you can see potential in a strategic partnership between Science and Technology and your company, you are welcome to contact the Faculty Secretariat to find out more about the options.


Strategic collaboration on world-class talents

The pharmaceutical company Novo Nordisk and Science and Technology entered into a collaboration agreement in 2016 to strengthen research and development of protein technology. A total of nine PhD students will be offered a three-year research scholarship, will take place in the leading technological research environments at Science and Technology, Aarhus University, and in Novo Nordisk’s research and development department in Måløv.
