It is increasingly common to assert that policy-makers are demanding that universities make themselves more relevant to society with more useful knowledge. It is widely agreed that this new ideal type of university develops new internal governance approaches that allow them to encourage external engagement, whether in terms of the kinds of strategic projects they pursue, their support infrastructures for knowledge exchange or even how internal culture regards external engagement. Clark proposed the idea of the entrepreneurial university, as a university which managed to align these various elements in self-reinforcing ways, building engagement into the institutional DNA of the university. Although many other ideal types have been promoted for engaged universities, what all these models have in common is the notion that university engagement relies upon a set of institutional alignments, from the steering centre to the individual academics. These are not exclusively academic notions – they have emerged in the literature in response to this policy enthusiasm amongst regional policy-makers to make universities more engaged. Although universities have undoubtedly become more centralised in governance and management terms in recent years, they remain knowledge institutions.
Five researchers from Aalborg University have developed an emergency ventilator made from just about 25 industrial components.
Creathio works by having students work on real case studies of participating companies, so that the companies can receive academic support in solving cases such as B2B marketing strategies in Poland. In mid-February, Creathio used their concept to host their own recruitment seminar, and find employees to work at Creathio. The workshop took place at the International House and was aimed at students and graduates who wanted to work with their idea.
However, they fell short of their matchmaking goals, and the platform left much to be desired. While startups are not the biggest part of the equation, the events offer ample opportunity for student to interact with companies, in the hopes of getting an internships, student job, or full-time employment. While the matchmaking program at AAU is only available for bachelor and master writing students, it allows students who are on the verge of job-seeking the opportunity to gain a deeper insight into a company outside of the traditional internship atmosphere.
These business, while they may present interesting cases for students, may not in a position financially to offer employment to students afterwards. Creathio has created a forum where students work on real case problems — but they are not being compensated for their work. While it is common for interviewees to tackle case problems in the recruitment process, they are typically facsimile cases or based on a previous issue the company had.
Having students solve an ongoing case, without compensation, is taking advantage of the students needs to connect with companies and violating labor laws. In addition to this, there is a question of academic integrity.

Conducting research and tests in the field of health science and technology can be a costly affair. Both in regards to the high-end technological equipment and facilities that often needs special certifications and approvals, but also in regards to training and the necessary competences of the employees. Aalborg University offers access for companies to the many fully equipped research laboratories, and provide support from highly trained laboratory technicians and researchers.
In order to gain access to the many research laboratories and the clinical and technical equipment found at Aalborg University a research collaboration could be initated between the company and researchers from Aalborg University, otherwise a contract allowing the company access to the equipment and facilities has to be formulated and signed. The contract will address the rights and regulations as well as the expected expenses that fall to the company. Contracts will be formulated on a case by case basis, depending on the specific laboratory.
Furthermore the university is first and foremost an institution for education and research. But the remaining capacity of the laboratories will be available to companies.
