Introduction to University Engagement with Business, Industry & Society
This one day workshop introduces the role of university engagement with business, industry and communities in the creation of economic, social and cultural benefits. Participants will understand the objectives of engagement and become familiar with relevant models and exemplar case studies in a variety of sectors and countries. Each participant will create an action plan tailored to their own needs and specific context.

The ACEEU definition of an "engaged university" is one which is oriented towards and strategically positioned to deliver a range of societal contributions, benefits and impacts. The institution undertakes education and research aligned with society and business needs. Education integrates external stakeholders and promotes a wide range of career opportunities, including the private, public and not-for-profit sector. Research and projects are collaborative and mutually beneficial. The priority in third mission activities is engagement and the institution accordingly develops its people, organisational capacity and external collaborations. An engaged university is an influential organisation within the wider ecosystem and is focused on, but not limited to, providing greater social and cultural impacts for the city and region.
