Partnership with industry is one of the main means to expose students to engineering practice. This paper presents experiences from the European Global Product Realization (EGPR) course jointly organised by six European universities. It attempts to extract desirable characteristics of a project and an industrial partner suitable for collaboration in practical design education. Particular attention is drawn to the learning outcomes which could suit this multidisciplinary and multicultural academic enterprise. Learned lessons will be applied to improve future EGPR courses.
