Collaboration

All that we do to make our research and our knowledge of practical use.

What is collaboration?

The concept of ‘collaboration’ is used within the world of universities. It is a dull word for something so exciting but we have not discovered a better word which encapsulates so much. Some people want to call it ‘the third task’ but that is even worse. Collaboration quite simply means all that we at the university do to make our research and our knowledge of practical use to society.

Examples
  • Lectures on research for both the general public and schools
  • Investigations

  • Popular science books
  • Debate articles in daily newspapers
