University-Business-Partnerships between higher education institutions and business partners in Germany and developing countries
The competitiveness of the global economy is increasingly dependent on whether there are sufficient and appropriately qualified employees available. In many developing and emerging countries, there are considerable differences between the capabilities of university graduates and the qualifications required by the industry. The lack of practical relevance means that university graduates are unable to find adequate employment opportunities. "Brain drain" on the one hand and the employment of imported specialists on the other hamper the economic development. Therefore, interaction between higher education institutions and enterprises is required. The "University-Business-Partnership" programme is intended to bring about a transfer of knowledge to foster close ties between universities and industry, thereby bridging the gap between university graduates and business communities and strengthening the dialogue between higher education and industry, thus being able to better satisfy the requirements and developments of the job market in the future.
