Danish industry prefers collaborating with Aalborg University

A large new survey performed by The Confederation of Danish Industry identifies Aalborg University as the preferred collaborator of Danish industry, also where research and development projects are concerned. The companies in particular emphasise AAU’s business-friendliness and ability to establish collaborations – qualities which also a very large degree also characterizes CISS’ work in relation to business.

Head of faculty Frede Blaabjerg from Aalborg University’s Faculties of Engineering, Science and Medicine is pleased by the impartial documentation in the Confederation’s survey.


- One thing is what we ourselves believe or say. Here, it is the companies themselves who put us into first place within a discipline that is among our basic values, namely the ability to establish collaborations between research and industry. This is an early Christmas present for us, but the top spot also puts us under an obligation in the future, Frede Blaabjerg says.

21 percent of the research and development companies who participated in the survey have been participating in a research collaboration with Aalborg University within the last three years. This puts AAU in the second place concerning the number of collaborations. Only the Technical University of Denmark is bigger as they have collaborated with 27 percent of the participating companies. However, the numbers only describe the number of collaborations and not the size of the individual projects.
