Abstract

Universities of Applied Sciences (UASs) have been transforming into hybrid organisations since the addition of research as a second core task next to teaching. Combining two different core processes in one organisation is a costly and logistically challenging endeavour. Therefore, to be sustainable as a hybrid organisation, UASs have to aim for synergy between research and teaching. This research investigates the intended synergy between research and teaching of six Dutch UASs by analysing their strategic documents. The findings show 35 varieties of synergy, divided over 6 themes: students, graduates, education, research, professional practice and institution. The results provide an overview of possible synergies between research and teaching UASs could aim for.
