Academic-Corporate Collaborations and the Future of Work at the Human-Technology Frontier
O'Reilly Lecture Theatre

Since 2017, the US-based National Science Foundation (NSF) has been building a foundation for their Big Ideas through pioneering research and pilot activities. One of these initiatives, Future of Work at the Human-Technology Frontier, seeks to provide a greater understanding of how constantly evolving technologies are actively shaping the lives of workers and how people, in turn, can shape those technologies, especially in the world of work. This session will explore the role that academic-corporate collaborations can play in supporting this initiative and add key insights into the future of work.

Speakers: Grace Wang, SUNY, Pramod Khargonekar, UC Irvine, Ramtin Attar, Autodesk, Georgia Chao, NSF

Developing Effective Strategic Roadmaps
Douglas Price Room

Roadmapping is a technique for planning an organization’s technological capabilities to ensure they meet its commercial or strategic goals.  For many companies, academic institutions are a key component to their roadmapping and this workshop will incorporate case studies to illuminate the key elements of the roadmapping exercise. We will also review how objective measures (publications, patents, etc) can be used to evaluate the capabilities and strengths of research performers such as universities and national labs.

Speakers: Mark Schmidt, Deere, Angel Hedberg, RTI, Nicky Athanassopoulou, University of Cambridge, Evgeny Rezunenko, PACE Business Partners
