Collaboration opportunities between business and education discussed during WE MAKE webinar


During the latest WE MAKE webinar, Ruben Cuschieri, Council Member and Chair of the Manufacturers and Other Industries Economic Group within The Malta Chamber, said “by bridging the gap between the academia and business, we can create innovative solutions and unlock opportunities that can drive our industry forward.”

“Through innovative partnerships between businesses and academia, we can break down barriers, create new opportunities, and ensure the sustainable growth of the industry,” he continued.



Dr Ing Paul Refalo from the University of Malta highlighted the Post-Doc Fellowship Programme that The Malta Chamber, in collaboration with the University of Malta and the Parliamentary Secretariat for Youth, Research and Innovation, awarded earlier this week. Refalo said that collaborations such as these are vital for both the academia and the business community.

During the webinar, the University of Malta showcased industry-academia collaboration in action, including a best-practice case study with Toly. The Malta Council for Science and Technology (MCST) presented one of the research grants available to support such undertakings, and finally Malta Enterprise demonstrated how through the partnering opportunities of the Enterprise Europe Network, help is provided to link academics and researchers with local and international SMEs, and vice-versa.

“The Malta Chamber believes that by sharing success stories and exploring practical ways to foster these connections, we hope to make it as easy as possible to encourage these initiatives,” said Cuschieri.

The WE MAKE Project is a collaboration between The Malta Chamber, the Malta Business Bureau and the Energy and Water Agency.
