Gender in the Global Research Landscape

Elsevier recently released a comprehensive report on research performance through a gender lens, called Gender in the Global Research Landscape, spans 20 years, 12 geographies, and 27 disciplines. This global study draws upon data and analytics, a unique gender disambiguation methodology, and involvement of global experts.

Please join GUIRR to discuss the findings of the report and subsequent institutional actions to advance gender balance in research through collaboration and partnership with the reports’ authors, Holly Falk-Krzesinski and Rachel Herbert of Elsevier, with a response from Chris Sahley, Professor and Special Advisor to the Provost on Gender Equity at Purdue University. This is the second webinar in our summer mini-series highlighting GUIRR University-Industry partner engagement.

Free and open to the public.

Highly Integrative Basic and Responsive Research (HIBAR): Partnerships for Discovery and Innovation

Academic, business, and government leaders are developing fresh research strategies to promote innovation and discovery. Their shared goal, building off strong historical precedents, is to achieve the twin-win of breakthrough research and societal benefits. Fundamental research carefully linked to real-world problem contexts appears to produce stronger theories and more societally valuable results. The term Highly Integrative Basic and Responsive (HIBAR) Research conveys these ambitious aspirations.

Please join GUIRR for a half-day workshop to consider strategies to more reliably produce HIBAR research through:
(1) Partnerships with business and government (cities, counties, state, federal), as well as non-governmental organizations (NGOs)
(2) Policy changes to campus hiring/tenure/promotion rules so as to support teamwork and problem orientation that includes off-campus partnerships and on-campus collaborations.

Free and open to the public.

Beyond Patents: Assessing the Value and Impact of Research Investments

Companies know exactly what they spend on research, but knowing exactly what they get for their money is a persistent problem. Without a good way to measure value, research—especially innovative fundamental research—can be viewed as a cost that can be cut to boost near-term earnings (supposedly without long-term consequences). The number of patents is one metric for measuring the value of research, but that information is not necessarily useful without knowing the business value of those patents in the marketplace.  What other metrics serve to highlight the value of research and innovation?

For members only.
