Introduction


Project-based (or challenge-based) collaboration is a proven method of working on projects with students from a variety of faculties and putting their knowledge and skills into practice. Corporate projects are worked on as part of the curriculum and students provide innovative solutions.

During these challenge-based collaboration sessions, students tackle your questions and challenges with the supervision of the professor, while developing transversal skills. This creates a dynamic and fruitful interaction where you as a company benefit from new design proposals, prototypes, concepts etc. while at the same time getting to know a potential future employee.

Reasons to Engage


TELANTO's Academic Business Network supports organisations to tap into the innovation potential of students during their academic enrolment and provides standard and simple processes to quickly and efficiently place pressing questions into teams of students ready to tackle your challenges in many geographies around the globe. The platform helps to organise multiple engagements on multiple challenges to never lose track of new developments and solutions coming to light.

  • Quickly design and develop challenges for collaboration in an academic context
  • Extend existing university collaborations for a broader reach and quick uptake for pressing challenges
  • Broaden your rapid prototyping capabilities by engaging curious minds
  • Take advantage of a proven and trusted collaboration methodology

Collaboration Opportunities
Open Innovation

Students of a diverse and highly international background bring their knowledge and skills in analyzing and implementing open innovation (OI) in its various forms to tackle the challenges that companies face in opening their innovation processes, successfully benefiting from various inbound and outbound OI practices and redefining their innovation strategies to account for modern open innovation environments and ecosystem settings.

Prototype Design Innovation for Robotics and Automation

Rapid prototypes for validation and testing purposes for robotics and automation systems. The design innovation focuses on a holistic user-oriented approach that considers technological, economical and sustainable impact of the products. This methodology allows the students in collaboration to design, develop and implement functional prototypes.

Bring university industry collaborations to life


We coach academics, leaders and student teams to co-create collaborative, meaningful solutions that drive personal, professional, and organisational growth. Digitising the university and industry intersection, helps academics and leaders to be more conscious in their collaboration – and helps student teams to interact more authentically in ways that enhance skills, trust, aliveness, collective problem-solving, and aligned action. We combine extensive experience of successful digital transformation with a deep knowledge of university industry collaborations. By addressing both we implement real, sustainable changes that impact multiple walks of life.
