Universities' Third Mission

To address the growing societal and economic challenges, there is an increasing demand for universities to use their knowledge from research and teaching to fulfil their so-called "Third Mission" in society and economy. This implies taking responsibility, actively and consciously, for the society on whose behalf they are working.The Third Mission has two key priorities:

  • targeted use and transfer of academic knowledge to help resolve diverse societal challenges;
  • transfer of technologies and innovations in the form of cooperation with public and private enterprises.
