Nat-Tech Business Committee

The Business Committee is the coordinating body for business-oriented activities and covers both Technical Sciences and Natural Sciences. The committee consists of representatives from the departments, centres and the two dean's offices.

The joint Business Committee for Natural Sciences and Technical Sciences helps forge more widespread dialogue and collaboration with the private sector and the public sector. The committee also advises the deans and the management teams at the faculties on business partnerships, and the committee is therefore a coordinating body for activities relating to business collaboration. The aim of the committee is to ensure a professional approach to the private sector.

The Business Committee is also a coordinating body for the local business committees at the departments and centres.
