Sponsorships

Organizations can increase their visibility within the UIDP community by sponsoring UIDP meetings, regional events, workshops and other educational programming.

A small and strategic set of sponsorships allows the UIDP to produce quality programming and avoid over-commercialization of events. Sponsoring UIDP meetings and other events provides an opportunity to:

  • Gain exposure to an audience of university and industry representatives
  • Make strategic relationships in an environment conducive to networking
  • Showcase your organization as an innovation leader
  • Contribute in a meaningful and appropriate way to the event (depending on the type of event and/or level of sponsorship).
