IT consultancy company Ordina was looking for cooperation opportunities with the Utrecht University of Applied Sciences (HU). Through an online questions tool and mediation developed by UtrechtVC, Ordina ended up at the ICT study programme from the faculty of Nature and Technology at the HU. First Ordina gave several guests lectures to one of the specific study programmes. At the start of the new school year the collaboration will become more intensive and Ordina will play a broader role in education. This collaboration is also the beginning of an initiative to place teams from Ordina at IT incubator UtrechtInc. There these teams will follow a special programme to rapidly test if their innovative ideas are viable.
Start project: February 2013
Goal: build a broader collaboration between the HU and Ordina
Role UtrechtVC: mediation and project guidance
