What Does the UIDP Do?

Improving U-I Partnerships

The UIDP is a recognized leader in addressing issues impacting academic-corporate collaboration, providing a unique forum for our member representatives to find better ways to partner.

We are a project-oriented organization meaning our member representatives identify issues impacting university-industry (U-I) relations and together, we find practical solutions to shared challenges impeding success, irrespective of who we are or where we work.

Organizational decision makers with varying job functions and titles actively participate in UIDP programs to maximize their investment in existing and future U-I collaborations.
