Collaboration at IEIShow/Hide content

Collaboration with companies and organisations outside of the university is an important part of operations at IEI, and has been since the department was formed. Collaboration allows IEI researchers to contribute to the development of companies and society, while at the same time obtaining valuable knowledge and experience. In other words – a win-win situation.

Collaborate with IEI – you’ll benefit from it!
