UIDP Academy: University Engagement Bootcamp in San Francisco

November 2, 2016 @ 8:00 am - 4:00 pm

The University Engagement Bootcamp is a UIDP Academy event, designed for corporate practitioners. Attendees will gain valuable insights on how to effectively manage their university partnerships as well as craft and execute an effective, holistic approach to university relationships by better understanding the critical issues to consider when collaborating with academia.

Overview & Focus

UIDP Academy events bring together practitioners to discuss effective strategies and common sticking points within a mutually beneficial and respectful forum. The University Engagement Bootcamp will cover what universities think about corporate partnering, provide specific examples of different company approaches to help attendees refine their company value proposition. Each session of the boot camp will be lead by experienced academic and corporate representatives from a strategically assembled set of universities and industries. Attendees will hear perspectives from both sides on issues critical to university-industry (U-I) partnerships including:

  • Strategic issues, including the rationale for collaboration, expectations and structures for engagement
  • Operational matters, including intellectual property, contracts, compliance and other administrative issues
  • Government perspectives on the value of U-I collaboration and partnerships
