UIDP Academy Workshops at UIDP29

September 16, 2019 - September 17, 2019

UIDP29 will be co-hosted by The Ohio State University and
Ohio University in Columbus, Ohio.


These workshops take place immediately prior to UIDP29 

Data-Informed Decision Making

Mon., Sept. 16 • 1–5 p.m.

Research publication and presentation data sets such as those contained within Scopus, Web of Science, and other systems provide the foundation to detail and characterize the research strengths of individual universities and to identify and validate individual subject matter experts. Multi-factorial analysis provides the ability to benchmark and compare the relative research strengths between universities. Systems like Topics of Prominence allow universities to recognize and promote their research strengths to potential industrial collaborators. Other systems objectively profile individual researchers experts such that they can be easily identified and evaluated as potential research collaborators by academic researchers and industry.

Innovation Districts and Research Parks in U-I Collaborations

Mon., Sept. 16 • 1–5 p.m.

In 1951, the Stanford University Dean of Engineering launched the world’s first university research park as a place where companies and universities could work together. Since then the university research park model has expanded across the globe and morphed into fully mixed-use innovation districts, start-up zones and tech towns, where universities and corporations live, work and play.
At this workshop, you will learn from experts across the country how to find champions, funding, and stakeholders for university research parks/innovation districts and how new models of university-engagement and placemaking are reshaping university-corporate partnering in fields from bio-health to data science.

Crafting State Programs to Foster U-I Collaborations

Tues., Sept. 17 • 8 a.m. – 12 p.m.

Many states and regions recognize the value of investing resources in academic-corporate partnerships.
