knowledge collaboration

The Faculty of Humanities consider international and national partnerships across institutions and sectors to be a significant incentive and a goal whereby the Faculty of Humanities can, with its particular profile, contribute to creating added value for research, education, local and global development, and for communication.

Co-operating with The Faculty of Humanities

One of the basic principles for the Faculty of Humanities at Aalborg University is a strong connection to the partners of the surrounding world. This collaboration between the Universities, companies and public sector contributes solutions, knowledge and qualifications 'on time'.

It is important that the Humanities is realised and actualised in interaction with the public sector and the business world - for instance through experience econnomical activities and designs - so that the knowledge and the qualifications possessed by researchers as well as students can be brought into play in 'the real world'. 

Triple Helix

The Faculty of Humanities works closely together with the business community and the public sector to create the future humanities.

This form for cooperation is called “Triple Helix”; it ensures a strong connection between the three spheres, which allows the researchers and students to bring into play their knowledge and competences in all three domains. The purpose of the “Triple Helix” is to secure that each sphere maintains their individual area of expertise, while they supplement each other with solutions, knowledge and experiences.
