Projects meeting at UIDP22 and what the teams will be working on:


  • Contract Accords: Review and discuss revisions to the Contract Accords on Copyrights, Software, and Confidential Disclosure. (See UIDP Contract Accord 8 & 9.) This is an opportunity to better understand the different perspectives involved in U-I contracting.
  • National Lab Project:
    • Contracting: Assist in preparing a guide to help UIDP member representatives understand the contracting language and options available when working with DOE national laboratories.
    • Data Analytics: Assist in the experimental design and the development of hypotheses for an objective assessment of how to select cross-sector partners (partners in national labs, universities, or companies).


  • Collaboration Scorecard – MetricsReview practitioner input on how to measure the success of U-I partnerships and discuss the next steps for the project.
  • Partnership Continuum: The revised content is here! Review new introductory content reflecting the shift in how companies and universities perceive the progression of U-I partnerships.
  • Effective U-I Engagement PracticesNeed to know what your partner is looking for? This project seeks to provide answers. Participate in the survey and share your insights during the session.
  • Leveraging the Triple HelixMake recommendations on how universities and companies can be more competitive when leveraging funding from the federal government, state governments, and foundations.
  • Corporate StructuresHelp universities understand what’s important to know about how companies operate in order to develop and maintain active, effective engagement in partnerships.
  • Partnership ShowcaseLearn about and share your own partnering best practices by being a part of interviews for new UIDP case studies.


  • Careers in Industry: Attend a panel discussion to hear from students, corporate recruiters, and university professors, setting the stage for reviewing the draft quick guide scheduled for Project Breakout Sessions #2.


We are also planning sessions to discuss three new UIDP projects:

  • Communicating U-I Research: Get in on the ground floor as UIDP starts discussions around how to communicate U-I collaborations more effectively. This session will lay the groundwork for an in-person working group meeting in June 2016.
  • Innovation Centers: Participate in a discussion about these new, emerging centers. Does UIDP need to do a project exploring them? What would that project look like?
  • Multi-party Contracts: Tell us which contracts challenge you the most! UIDP heard your requests and wants to launch a new project. Help us understand how to shape this project to be most beneficial to our membership.

[Please Note: these sessions are subject to change. We’ll update the information as it is confirmed.]
