Maximizing Innovation and Technology Commercialization of Federal Research Investments through the Best Practices at Innovation and Economic Prosperity Universities

The Government-University-Industry Research Roundtable will host a webinar to discuss a report from the University of Michigan's Economic Growth Institute assessing university collaboration and tech commercialization best practices. Research universities are the cornerstone of American innovation; the country's national competitiveness depends on these institutions to increasingly perform, translating research into the innovative products the country needs. This study investigated the best practices of 59 Innovation & Economic Prosperity (IEP)-designated universities in technology commercialization and assigned four areas of best practice: culture, champions, incentives, and collaboration. Universities with a strong cultural emphasis on lab-to-market activities promote its value across all internal departments and levels of leadership. Strong technology ecosystems are dependent upon experienced professionals moving technology forward and reducing barriers. Incentives are vital to motivate and reward new ideas; and collaborations are necessary to foster ideas and increase access to resources throughout the ecosystem.

The GUIRR webinar will discuss the study's findings, which provide foundational research for how universities effectively move innovations from the lab to the market and benefit society, with Paula Sorrell and Sarah Crane of the Economic Growth Institute at University of Michigan.

Free and open to the public.

The Transformational Impact of 5G

Next generation wireless networks—comprised of a suite of technologies collectively labeled 5G—present significant opportunity to transform connectivity. Increased broadband capacity may enable improvements in reliability, capability, security, and latency to support large-scale deployment of artificial intelligence and IoT devices across industries. This workshop will examine the state of research, development, and deployment of 5G technologies; the challenges of securing 5G network infrastructure; and the global landscape of competition on 5G deployment. Priorities for cross sector collaboration and coordination between government, universities, and industry will be discussed. 

For GUIRR members and guests only.
