The purpose of the University-Industry Demonstration Partnership (UIDP) is to enhance the value of collaborative partnerships between university and industry in the United States.
UIDP is an organization of universities and companies who seek to build a stronger relationship between these parties. UIDP provides a unique forum for university and industry representatives to meet and discuss operational and strategic issues such as contracting, intellectual property, and compliance matters. These conversations might otherwise never take place, and they serve to help university representatives better understand the culture and constraints of their industry counterparts, and vice versa. This initiative is supported by the Government-University-Industry Research Roundtable (GUIRR). Learn more about UIDP
