The University of Twente has officially decided to be involved in the Twente Board Foundation and BV, a collaboration between government, business and knowledge institutions in Twente. The Chairman of the UT will act as one of its directors.
‘In my research I focus on how universities collaborate with regional stakeholders,’ says Lisa Nieth. Her PhD thesis, which she defended last week, also includes the UT. ‘If academics know they can and should work on regional projects, it will empower the UT as a whole.’
