To support efforts to increase industrial and business collaboration, the university established a university-wide business committee and four faculty committees. There are also committees at department level. The aim is to improve coordination across faculties and the internal dialogue between a faculty, its departments and the university in general.
A coordination group provides the Business Committee with administrative support.
AU's business network is for academic and administrative staff working in the business and industry area across the university. The purpose of the network is to support the AU business initiative by creating an experience and knowledge exchange forum.
Enterprise and Innovation supports AU's business initiative and consists of The Kitchen and the Office of Business Collaboration.
