How are collaborative projects between university design programs and external partners like
companies or institutions integrated in the curriculum and what are the advantages and problems
related to such initiatives? Many experiments are done in the area, but until now a more general
overview has been missing. The paper describes the theme in a global perspective referring to the
results of a survey among different design programs at 12 universities from 9 countries and 4
continents. The universities use different models but matters like intellectual rights, timing and
confidentiality agreements create problems in many cases. Collaborative projects are very valuable
on several areas and most teachers and study managers expect to do more collaborative projects in
the future.
