The main aim of this project was to support European universities in the development of effective and efficient University-Enterprise Partnerships (UEPs) governance structures and practices aligned with their particular strategic plans and responsiveness to the knowledge-based economy requirements. Within the participating countries, powerful examples of university-business partnerships (HUP) were described, their organisation and practical work have been analysed. Especially, the political, financial, strategic and individual challenges of implementing the partnerships have been worked out. A total of 16 types of partnerships and seven aspects of partnership have been identified in the GOODUEP study.

The project is completed.
