Industry-academia collaborations: experiences and pitfalls


Collaborations between industry and universities in the field of informatics are associated with many challenges. In this talk, we describe our experiences in collaborating on various projects and the collaboration process we followed. To facilitate such collaborations, we have been working on a portal that provides services from academia to industry, which proved to be no easy task. This talk reports on our experiences and pitfalls and also aims to stimulate a discussion on how such collaborations can be better implemented.
