      Here's what they say about AcademicLabs
      Research in academia is highly dependent on research funding in the "research funding market". In "triple helix" consortia (knowledge institutions, companies and government), excellent research projects must be developed and executed. We are constantly looking for excellent partners to join our consortia. AcademicLabs is a fantastic tool to help us in finding partners.
