    Low motivation for chemistry learning still represents a challenge in the field of chemistry education. A frequently mentioned reason is that students do not see the connections between the content of the chemistry education and their personal life and society. Applying chemistry education based on industry collaboration to teaching practice represents the possibility to overcome this issue and to enhance and contributing to all three dimensions of the relevance of chemistry education (an individual, a societal and a vocational dimension). In order to encourage the "schools-university-industry" cooperation in Slovenia, this kind of collaboration took place during the academic year 2016/17 in the framework of the implementation of two study programs of education of future chemistry teachers at the University of Ljubljana. The main purpose of this paper is to examine the connection between this experience and the perception of the relevance of "schools-university-industry" cooperation from the point of view of future chemistry teachers. The sample consists of 33 students, future chemistry teachers in elementary and secondary schools, who participated in the mentioned "schools-university-industry" cooperation. In the survey, a questionnaire was used to obtain the information regarding the perception of future chemistry teachers about the relevance of collaboration before and after the experience of the cooperation. The results indicate that the experience of "schools-university-industry" collaboration is connected with the higher proportion of students’ responses related to their perceptions of the relevance of the collaboration from the aspects of different dimensions of the relevance of chemistry education - an individual, a societal and a vocational dimension. The cognitive domain is particularly exposed, namely as the acquisition of knowledge and experiences of students and future chemistry teachers or as the process of exchanging knowledge and experiences between teachers, future teachers and university, in contrast to one-sided transmission between different stakeholders.
