UIDP Academy: Co-location Workshop
April 11, 2016 @ 1:00 pm - April 12, 2016 @ 12:00 pm
This UIDP Academy event is designed to provide industry and academic leaders valuable insights on the benefits and challenges of co-location.
In today’s highly competitive research environment, companies and universities are seeking novel and disruptive approaches to collaboration that, if successfully employed, will bolster their research and commercialization goals. Co-locating academic and industrial researchers in the same or adjacent physical space is one way organizations are facilitating the flow of ideas, innovation and collaboration in their university-industry (U-I) partnerships.
UIDP Academy events bring together practitioners to discuss effective strategies and common sticking points within a mutually beneficial and respectful forum. The Co-location Workshop will cover the range of different mechanisms organizations use to co-locate; potential benefits and challenges for industry and academic partners in pursuing co-location opportunities; and case studies illustrating different institutional/industrial approaches. Topics we’ll cover include:
- Personnel & Training
- Managing Intellectual Property
- Managing Multi-stakeholder Contracts
- Operations and Facilities Management
Who should attend?
Those interested in expanding their collaboration mechanisms with their strategic partners or interested in benchmarking current co-located activities.
When is it?
This UIDP Academy event takes place April 11 – 12, 2016, immediately prior to UIDP22.
