The Consortia Workshop is a UIDP Academy event, designed to provide organizational leaders valuable insights on the key issues to organizing multi-stakeholder collaborations by review of different models and approaches.

Consortia has emerged as a collaboration model for long, complex, costly and high risk problems that are beyond any one organization’s capabilities. A consortium brings together researchers from a range of organizations to leverage their assets, knowledge and resources towards an aligned goal and to create broadly useable solutions that benefit all participant. To be successful participants that may represent, academia, government, non-profits, and industry share a vision and create a governance structure that supports transparency and accountability throughout the research and development process. This type of collaboration is a complex endeavor – with multiple stakeholders and therefore multiple challenges. Integrating participants, that are driven by different cultures, incentives, resources, and have varying abilities to contribute, is challenging
UIDP Academy events bring together expert practitioners to discuss effective strategies and common sticking points within a mutually beneficial and respectful forum. The Consortia Workshop will highlight the differences and issue presented by types of participants, whether government, industry, foundation or third party structure. The workshop session will be led by experienced representatives from a strategically assembled set of organizations representing different models and different sectors. While no two consortia are exactly alike, attendees will hear perspectives and examples from the session facilitators on common models and issues critical to managing consortia including:
- Aligning expectations, cultures, and the mission of the participants
- Governance for managing transparent multi party decision processes and accountability
- Addressing key policy matters including confidentiality, intellectual property, and data sharing among participants.
- Understanding the financial structure
- Measuring value and impact
