HubLinked has (i) improved the effectiveness University-Industry (U-I) linkages between computer science faculty and different types of companies (ii) developed global software innovator graduates that can work in any sector and (iii) upskilled academic and industry staff to engage in U-I linkages for software innovation.
HubLinked partnership can directly reach over 3,000 companies, 12,000 students and 400 staff during the lifetime of the project.
