The British Council’s Higher Education Dialogues are facilitated conversations between policymakers, institutions and industry representatives to contribute fresh perspectives on topical issues affecting higher education.
This workshop will examine the theme: Academia and Industry Collaboration. The programme is designed to provide training on and showcase models of sustainable partnerships between Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) and Industry. Sessions will include the following:
- The establishment of a Campus Incubation Hubs
- Use of Technology Transfer Offices
- Collaborating with industry to deliver high impact research
- Collaboration with industry to improve the curriculum in STEM
The objective is to provide HEIs with the opportunity to develop strategic partnerships with industry and employers. The event will bring together industry and academic stakeholders and provide a platform for you to examine the different models that can lead to strategic and successful partnerships.
Nigerian and UK institutions that express interest in the dialogue will be eligible to co-apply for seed grants to support the development of strategic partnerships between Nigerian HEIs and industry partners.
Upcoming HE Dialogue session:
Date: March 19 – 21 2019
