Short Course: Strategic Doing: Ten Skills for Agile Leadership
Pfahl Hall 140

University-industry collaborations can offer many benefits. However, they are not without risk. What would it look like if we had an open source "operating system” to reduce these risks and increase the productivity of our collaborations? What if we had a shared discipline to speed the formation of collaborations, move them quickly toward measurable outcomes, and make adjustments along the way. Developed by Ed Morrison and incubated at Purdue since 2005, Strategic Doing fills this gap and this open source discipline is now offered through a national network of universities. Participants in this interactive workshop will be introduced to Strategic Doing through a simulation game, specifically designed for UIDP members, and will walk you through the process of developing a strategic action plan to guide new collaborations..

Participants will receive the newly released book "Strategic Doing: Ten Skills for Agile Leadership"

Speaker: Ed Morrison, Purdue University

Keynote

Rising Tides: Rethinking Education in an Age of Uncertainty
Blackwell Ballroom

Introduction: Morley Stone, The Ohio State University
Speaker: Jen Gresham, Work for Humanity

As Zach Stein, a philosopher of education has said, “Education today must prepare us for the future, even though the future is a moving target.” Whether we’re talking about competing in the global marketplace, preventing dire climate outcomes, or preserving democracy, the qualifications for success have changed. The future’s only certain aspect is its increasing complexity and unpredictability. Consider that the average age of an S&P 500 company is under 20 years, down from 60 years in the 1950s. At the current churn rate, about half of S&P 500 companies will be replaced over the next ten years. In addition to solving known problems, we face unprecedented challenges that will require individuals and organizations alike to become more adept at innovation and transformation. In this talk, we'll explore how agile learning and organization provides the opportunity to drive economic prosperity and liberate human potential at scale.

Breakout Sessions #1

REACH for Commercialization™: Narrowing the Gender Gap in Tech Transfer
Pfahl Hall 340

REACH for Commercialization™, the signature program of Ohio State ADVANCE, is the culmination of 10 years of development, reiteration and refinement.  REACH was developed under the auspices of a National Science Foundation ADVANCE Institutional Transformation award in 2008. The program is a cohort-based model of experiential learning that addresses the persistent gender gap in the innovation ecosphere.  REACH focuses on developing and sustaining networks to build knowledge, remove barriers and increase the participation of women in technology transfer, patenting and entrepreneurship.   Since inception, six cohorts, totaling 88 women faculty and postdoctoral scholars have participated in the REACH program.  Our data reveal that in aggregate, the invention disclosure rate has doubled after participating in REACH.  In this session we will review the evolution of the program from a basic workshop series to a continuous learning, mentoring and networking opportunity.  Together with our partner, Rev1 Ventures, we will share metrics, key insights, lessons learned and plans for future development and expansion of the program.

Speakers: Caroline Crisafulli, The Ohio State University, Mary Juhas, The Ohio State University, Wayne Embree, Rev1 Ventures

Creating the ‘Future of Work’ Ecosystem:  A Two-Year and Four-Year Collaborative Approach
Pfahl Hall 330

The ‘Future of Work’ is now and our students and industry partners require the same from higher education:   meaningful and collaborative partnerships that seamlessly allow traditional and non-traditional students on ramps to in-demand careers and off-ramps to sustained economic mobility.  This session will outline how the Central Ohio Compact, convened by Columbus State Community College, with 4-year higher education, K12, and industry partners, have come together to create and sustain this new knowledge economy ecosystem.

Speaker: Rebecca Butler, Columbus State Community College

Navigating the Landscape: University-Industry Partnerships
Pfahl Hall 302

In conjunction with several universities, Academic Analytics is launching a pilot project to evaluate the larger landscape of university-industry partnership.  By mining data from publications, grants, honors, patents, and clinical trials on 350,000+ scholars, and identifying corporate connections therein, the goal is to better understand the nature and extent of academia’s relationship with industry partners and provide peer comparisons

Speakers: Dave Ramsey & Carol Whitacre, Academic Analytics

Project: Public Funding Opportunities
Pfahl Hall 240

US federal and state governments are the largest funders of research in the world. Though federal funding of research was over $142B in 2018, UIDP members have had mixed success in securing funding for collaborative projects. This project breakout session will seek to identify best practices for securing federal and state funding for U-I collaborative research.

Speakers: Chris Hewitt, BASF & Ivelina Metcheva, Virginia Commonwealth University

Creating & Using a Negotiating Playbook
Pfahl Hall 202

We will review best practices for obtaining endorsement and keeping your playbook up to date. Finally, we will recommend associated training to ensure your staff can use the playbook effectively.

Moderator: Kristy Baker, Ohio State University
Speakers: Mo Valentine, Ohio University & Dave Doty, Colorado State University

Developing Ph.D. Talent: A National, Multi-Stakeholder Initiative
Pfahl Hall 140

Reports from the private sector cite challenges in recruiting, training and retaining talent as a constraint on industry growth. Meanwhile, graduate students and postdocs express frustration with a lack of exposure to—and preparation for—the wide variety of career paths available. This initiative brings together university leadership, graduate and postdoctoral educators, career and professional development specialists, scientific societies, national funders, policy makers and employers to transform the training of PhD scientists for efficient transitions into the scientific workforce. This UIDP session will introduce the initiative and share outcomes of an NSF/HHMI-supported, multi-stakeholder workshop on the gaps and challenges in enhancing the career development of PhDs.
