Proffessors connected to LS&T form a link between educational institutes and the business community, local authorities, other institutes and knowledge partners. Professorships strengthen LS&T’s educational qualities, mainly by sharing knowledge with companies and other institutes, by offering more applied practical research opportunities to students.


Professors give (guest) lectures, but they also supervise final projects and practical research. Combined efforts of educational institutes and the business industry often lead to new, ingenious ideas, which lecturers subsequently often published online, in specialist journals or in other media. They take LS&T out into the work field, as it were. On the other hand, the outside world also has the opportunity to see what it is we do!
