Collaboration and innovation
Uppsala University welcomes broad cooperation with the surrounding community.
We can help municipalities, authorities, companies and organisations with skills enhancement of their staff through tailor-made courses – contract education (in Swedish).
Within our study programmes, students can take on assignments at different types of organisations. Through our career networks CareerGate and Studentkraft (in Swedish) you can advertise projects that students can apply for. At CareerGate you can also find recently graduated students.
There are two main forms of research cooperation: contract research and other forms of collaborative research.
