U-I Engagement Outside of Major Metropolitan Areas
May 22, 2018 @ 8:00 am - May 24, 2018 @ 5:00 pm
Academic-Corporate Partnerships across the Partnership Continuum can be challenging, and these parties (as well as other sectors) are interested in enhancing the value proposition from these collaborations. For universities located outside major cities and seeking enhanced academic stature, the issues can be even more daunting. Fortunately, there may be competitive and strategic reasons for a company to work with this set of schools. Learnings can be gleaned from successful efforts (such as the Center for Biofilm Engineering at Montana State) and by having open and honest discussions about what works (and doesn’t work) in these university-industry partnerships.
This workshop will be held at the University of Arkansas in May 2018. This is an invite-only event.
