Dean's blog: "We will bring together the leading-edge competence of industry and academia"

How could we then, together, create virtuous circles and strengthen lifelong learning that will benefit individuals, companies, academia and by extension, society as a whole? The concept of affiliation that we have developed is, I think, something that deserves attention at the national level as well, writes Annika Olsson, LTH's dean.

We hope to attract participants from more organisations than we had in the pilot as well as spread the concept to more higher education institutions as an interesting form of collaboration and lifelong learning, writes LTH's dean. Photo: Kennet Ruona

Through Affiliated Competence, participants have been able to develop their individual competence whilst the project has generated new knowledge and approaches. It has also resulted in new insights and relevant collaborations for researchers and lecturers at LTH.

Even after the project has ended, both LTH and the companies will continue to benefit from the exchange which has led to wider contact areas, enhanced cooperation and an interest in collaborating in the future.
