The research paper evaluates the extent of current international aspects
of university-business cooperation related to the programmes in the
field of Technology and potential for its development. The study is
exploratory and is based on qualitative interviews with managers of
industrial companies. Business representatives value
internationalization most as a way to access global knowledge and talent
pool to increase innovation. Most potential for enhancing cooperation
lies in international research and development projects. However, the
current experiences are mainly related to the student projects
supervision and workforce recruitment. The findings can be used by
universities for developing a dialogue and strengthening cooperation
with industrial partners. Universities should more actively promote the
international cooperation opportunities to companies to increase their
awareness and consequent involvement.
