The ultimate goal of our education and research is to promote the development of society. A highly developed strategy for collaboration is one of the conditions required for this to happen.

Targeted collaboration

The strategic collaboration agenda of Linköping University is based on our ambition to deepen our role as long-term source of expertise and hub of knowledge in the development of society and the business world. It is related to all of our operations and our quality-assurance investment in education, research and collaboration. The work of development takes place in collaboration with, among others, the university’s strategic partners.
