VSI embraces cross-sectoral Collaborations

The active involvement of commercial enterprises in research activities is a key factor in Europe's development as a most competitive knowledge-driven and innovation-based society. Vienna Scientific fully commits to the Triple Helix concept of university-industry-government relationships - illustrating the necessary shift from a industry-government dyad in the Industrial Society to a growing triadic relationship between university-industry-government in the Knowledge Society.  

Expected Impacts by Cross-Sectoral Collaboration

  • Increased set of skills of VSI staff members, both R&D-related and transferable ones
  • Increased set of skills of involved researchers, leading to improved employability and career prospects both in and outside academia (including recruiting by VSI)
  • Enhanced cooperation and transfer of knowledge between VSI and academia, and the development of sustainable international and inter-sectoral collaborative networks 
  • Increase in R&D&I capacity and output, more knowledge and ideas converted into products and services (for academia)
