New Webinar Series! Working at the University-Industry Interface: Effective Strategies for Active Researchers

Wednesdays, February 7 through May 2, 2018
1:00 pm - 2:15 pm
Sears Library Building, Room 642

Join us for group viewing of this series.

A shifting landscape of federal research funding and declining corporate research and development budgets make university and industry partnerships highly attractive for both sides; however, opposing values and interests can make such partnerships especially tricky to manage.

Join us for a series of webinars that will guide you through the nuances and complexities of these research partnerships. Over seven sessions, we’ll carefully cover the most critical considerations for creating win-win relationships.

You can’t effectively learn about successful partnerships unless you can hear from both sides. This is a unique opportunity to gain access to insights and best practices from leading experts at research universities and leading global corporations. They’ll leverage the unique perspective of University-Industry Demonstration Partnership’s (UIDP) research and best practices, as well as their own personal experience.
