This report, developed by the HubLinked Consortium, aims at determining what works best when higher education institutions work with industry on software innovation. The range of potential mechanisms for U-I linkages is extensive and they differ in effectiveness. Many of them are examined in the following pages under different sections. This report tries to identify the most efficient ways for HEIs and companies to engage in different types of collaborations as well as identify different needs, obstacles, enablers, preferences and perceptions that CS faculties and industry hold. This research enables a better understanding of the dynamics of U-I linkages in software innovation and hopefully assists companies of various sizes in all sectors in accessing software innovation expertise in a cost-effective way.
Here’s a brief introduction of what you’ll find in the report!
