“Rectors’ Conference of Finnish Universities of Applied Sciences ARENE ry” in Helsinki, January 22nd, 2008

Partnering and science-to-business marketing are key success factors for the future development of relationships between universities and companies. New concepts are needed in order to support these relationships. Such a concept already exists in key account management, but still needs to be adjusted to the specific needs of university-company-relationships. Prof. Dr. Thomas Baaken and Carsten Schröder, director of the Transferagentur Fachhochschule Münster GmbH, leaded the workshop. They introduced the classical, rather IT-based CRM and the PRM (Partner Relationship Management), which has been developed by the Fachhochschule Münster. Both concepts were explained to the participants and afterwards discussed in regard of their applicability in the own university.
