Collaborate with us

Umeå University is not an academic island. We seek to share our knowledge and our research findings. External contacts are of extreme importance, as is an on-going dialogue with the general public, with the public sector and with industry.

To this end, we have established special resources aimed at building bridges of understanding and mutual enlightenment between education/research and society/industry. Among these special resources are organisations such as the External Relations Office and Uminova Innovation.

The External Relations Office

The External Relations Office functions as a support and a contact for companies, organisations, and authorities who wish to co-operate with Umeå University. You are welcome to contact us when you need help to develop an idea for a collaboration or improve your level of professional competence.

The External Relations Office

International research cooperation

Grants Office is part of The External Relations Office. We support external stakeholders – enterprises, organisations and individuals – in finding partners for collaboration on research and development, and for joint action in areas of mutual interest.

We also provide information and support to the university´s researchers concerning funding from the Structural Funds of the European Union, and the European Union Framework Programmes for Research and Development.

International Office

International Office works with university-wide questions pertaining to internationalisation. The mandate includes cooperating with faculties and departments at Umeå University to facilitate the possibilities for students, teachers and administrative staff to participate in mobility schemes that aim to provide an international dimension to their study or work experience. 

International Office manages and coordinates the university's participation in several international cooperations, networks and projects, for example: Erasmus+, Nordplus, Linnaeus-Palme, the Nordic Centre in India and the Nordic Centre in Fudan.

More information about Umeå University's overall international strategy can be found in our Erasmus policy statement.

Uminova Innovation AB

Companies in need of research skills can obtain help through Uminova Innovation AB. Our main aim is to stimulate an exchange of knowledge, ideas and experience between the University and the industry. Uminova Innovation AB is a gateway to the research resources available at the University, but it is also a gateway to the industry for researchers.

Our centre catalogues, investigates and evaluates research results from the point of view of commercial viability. When research is found to be of commercial interest, we can assist the researcher through all the necessary steps to establishing a company.
