Research collaboration between the University of Copenhagen and the business community has a positive economic effect
In collaboration with DAMVAD, in the spring of 2012 the University of Copenhagen for the first time gathered and investigated all available data on the economic effects of collaboration between the University’s researchers and the business community, both in Denmark and abroad, over a ten-year period from 1998 to 2008.
The analysis shows that the University of Copenhagen collaborates with the business community on an extensive, wide-ranging basis. The analysis also shows that the number of collaborations between the University’s researchers and the business community, in Denmarkas well as abroad, has been increasing steadily over the last ten years. In 1998, there were 227 registered formal collaborations between researchers at the University of Copenhagen and the business community. By 2008, the number had increased to 800 formal agreements. In addition, there are many informal collaborations.
