University & Industry Collaboration

As the lubricant industry continues to evolve, universities have a unique opportunity to contribute to our growth and innovation. By collaborating with industry leaders, conducting groundbreaking research, and nurturing the next generation of lubricant experts, universities can play a pivotal role in shaping the industry’s future. We in turn can support universities and students with specialist insight/mentorship/learning from our STEM Ambassadors and provide a funding window to those looking for financial support for projects. 

Research and Development: Universities can lead the way in conducting cutting-edge research on lubricant technology, materials, and sustainability. Through collaborative projects with industry partners, universities can drive innovation and develop novel solutions that address the evolving needs of the lubricant industry. As a University you may be seeking funding to support your research and we would be delighted to share your project requests with our member companies.

Industry Partnerships: Universities can establish strategic partnerships with lubricant companies, research organisations, and industry associations to facilitate knowledge exchange, technology transfer, and collaborative initiatives. These partnerships can lead to joint research projects, internship opportunities, and sponsored programs that benefit both academia and industry. Academia and industry can shape the future of the lubricant industry, fostering progress and prosperity for all stakeholders.

Support from Lube Media (research material): Here at Lube Media, we are the number 1 global magazine for the lubricant industry: the European perspective on the global industry. We would be delighted to supply your university or school with copies of our magazine to aid students in their learning and understanding of the lubricant industry.

Each issue is contributed to by industry professionals who are experts in their field or researchers and professors in the fields of lubrication, tribology and mechanical engineering from institutions across the world. We also curate a complete digital archive of past editions dating back to 1988, meaning subscription gives unlimited and indefinite access to over 30 years’ worth of lubricants history and technological development!

We would also be interested to hear from academics who wished to share their research in the form of articles for the magazine. Being at the forefront of research into new materials and methods gives researchers insight that would be of great interest to our readers, who are as eager to keep up-to-date with the latest research and innovation, as would other students advancing their studies at institutions globally.
