Purpose and goal

The project aims at enhancing the capacity of Swedish universities to cooperate and take societal responsibility, by enabling more utilisation and impact by the efforts made at universities, without having to increase the amount of funding, to increase the quality of conducted education and research and to ensure the universities´ future ability to conduct their operations without being restricted by intellectual property obstacles. A basic purpose is to ensure that the lessons learned from the KMP-program become widely implemented in the higher education institutions.

Expected results and effects

The overall objective of the project is to develop the capacity of Swedish universities for creating value for society by implementing practical and applicable methods of identifying, valuing and utilizing knowledge assets to enable increased collaboration and societal responsibility. This is to be done based on current position of each participating university and without the universities having to deviate from basic academic values of openness and independence.

Planned approach and implementation

The project is carried out in seven work packages (WP). First, an analysis of the current state of the participating universities is conducted. The purpose of this is to specify how the project can help to fill the needs of each university and the best implementation mechanisms to achieve lasting effects. The other WPs focus on the learning and dissemination of materials, results and knowledge between universities and implementation mechanisms to achieve lasting effects. In addition, there is a WP for project management, risk management and administration.
