UIDP at Penn State

September 21 @ 9:00 am - September 24 @ 5:00 pm

Co-hosted by Penn State University

Developing modern engagement models for enhanced holistic university-industry collaboration

University and industry engagement teams continue to evolve methods and models to build strategic U-I partnerships. Innovators are developing, testing, and improving a variety of new approaches–from improvements to programming that provide value to companies located in a university’s research park to engagement mechanisms that connect industry to the university’s entrepreneurial system, to new methods of organizing academic resources to improve collaboration and drive holistic relationships.

Please join us for UIDP at Penn State, co-hosted by Penn State University in State College, PA, where we will provide insight into new and improved models of engagement and leading-edge approaches to enhancing university-industry collaborations.
