Working at the University-Industry Interface: Effective Strategies for Active Researchers

May 2, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 2:15 pm EDT

Join us on Wednesday, May 2nd to learn about University-Industry Collaborations with Government Engagement.

Session 7: Benefiting from University-Industry Collaborations with Government Engagement

Agenda highlights

  • Companies partnering with universities to leverage federal funds for corporate investments
  • Increasing emphasis of government agencies to show relevance to their R&D portfolios
  • Differences among state and federal programs

The UIDP ( is pleased to announce a webinar series developed jointly and offered with Academic Impressions (AI).

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:

    1. Navigating the benefits and challenges
    2. Managing expectations and creating relationships
    3. Establishing contacts and handling proprietary information
    4. Preparing proposals and budgets
    5. Addressing compliance and contracting issues
    6. Negotiating intellectual property (IP)
    7. Leveraging government involvement

Multiple Perspectives

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.
