UIDP Academy: Corporate Engagement Boot Camp
December 2, 2015 @ 1:00 pm - December 3, 2015 @ 3:00 pm EST
The Corporate Engagement Boot Camp is a UIDP Academy event, designed to help academic leaders hone and improve their approach to industry collaborations.
This event will deliver valuable insights and information on how to craft and execute an effective, holistic approach to corporate relationships through better understanding of the critical issues universities can consider when collaborating with industry.
Prominent universities are investing heavily in their corporate engagement strategies. University leaders are looking for ways to engage companies across the entire Partnership Continuum and to maximize the return from their corporate-relations efforts. At the same time, companies are facing both decreasing internal R&D budgets and pressure to create new products, solutions and services. To sustain innovative research, many companies are bolstering their academic engagement programs while streamlining the number of partnerships they have, choosing to concentrate efforts on a limited number of academic institutions that provide technical expertise and engagement models that coordinate research, tech transfer, workforce development, recruiting and philanthropic support.
The Corporate Engagement Boot Camp will cover what corporations think about academic partnering, providing specific examples of different institutional approaches to help attendees refine their institutional value propositions. Each session of the boot camp will be led by experienced academic and corporate representatives from a strategically assembled set of universities and industries.
