Kelvin Droegemeire, OSTP Director, on the value of building cross-sector partnerships

Kelvin Droegemeier, director of the White House Office of Science and Technology, joined UIDP for a cross-sector engagement summit Dec. 3, 2019 in Stanford, CA, “Broadening University-Industry Engagement.” In this video, Dr. Droegemeier and UIDP’s Anthony Boccanfuso speak to the force-multiplier effect of cross-sector collaboration among private industry, federal agencies, universities and non-profit organizations. The event was an opportunity for stakeholders across the research partnership continuum to discuss challenges and solutions to engage more fully, strengthen relationships and ultimately enhance the societal impact of collaborative partnerships.
