Final Report - ULAB (European Laboratory for modelling the Technical Research University of Tomorrow)

Project ID: 262075
Funded under: FP7-SIS

Abstract

This is the final report of the ULAB project which was funded under the Seventh Framework Package (FP7). The project was an innovative research University-based think-tank of five leading technical and research-intensive European universities, committed to work together towards renewing university research and innovation management policies. They in particular identified and report on best practices and innovative procedures for research management and structures, valorisation, entrepreneurship and outreach. The report goes through the actions undertaken by the project partners to systematically compare benchmarks and refine their best practices to contribute towards better strategic choices. The report notes that ULAB worked as a university laboratory carrying out experimental best practices in order to demonstrate how networking and open innovation between universities can increase the quality of research and innovation in the quest for excellence. The new thinking emerging out of these exchanges was published in a white paper on "How to build the Technical Research University of Tomorrow" giving recommendations to tackle specific challenges.
