UIDP Academy: Data-Informed Decision Making for U-I Research Collaborations

September 16, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm EDT

This workshop takes place immediately prior to the
UIDP29 conference in Columbus, Ohio.

Data-Informed Decision Making Overview

Basic Research publication and presentation data sets such as those contained within Scopus, Web of Science, and other systems provide the foundation to detail and characterize the research strengths of individual universities and to identify and validate individual subject matter experts. The multi-factorial analysis provides the ability to benchmark and compare the relative research strengths between universities. Systems like Topics of Prominence allow universities to recognize and promote their research strengths to potential industrial collaborators. Other systems objectively profile individual researchers experts such that they can be easily identified and evaluated as potential research collaborators by academic researchers and industry.
