Project opportunity - partner search
Thomas More University College (the largest university college in Flanders) is looking for partners for the TRIANGLE2020 project (Erasmus+ KA2 strategic partnership - innovation in the field of higher education).
Project description
The main objective of the Erasmus+ TRIANGLE 2020 project is to increase the capacity of European higher education institutions (including university colleges offering professional bachelor programs) to implement an efficiently working knowledge triangle at the level of these institutions. This will lead to a better integration of applied research results and innovative practices into the educational offer on one hand and to a more successful market introduction of products and services resulting from applied research on the other hand. In order to reach this objective, the consortium will develop tools and test pilot concepts that allow university colleges all over Europe to make their institutional knowledge triangle work.

Key words: knowledge triangle, innovation & research, applied research

Partners sought
Thomas More is particularly looking for Higher Education Institutions (University Colleges) with competences and expertise in applied research (TRL > 4), especially experts in applied research policy at the institutional level and initiators of innovative knowledge triangle good practices. Public authorities or employers’ organizations experienced with innovative cooperations with education and research are also qualified for the project development. 

Partners are invited to express their interest by 10/02/2017 at the latest by mailing to Mr. Kris Vancluysen, EU project developer: kris.vancluysen@thomasmore.be
