UIDP is an organization of universities and companies who seek to enhance the value of collaborative partnerships 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. This initiative is supported by the Government-University-Industry Research Roundtable (GUIRR)Learn more about UIDP


University Industry Demonstration Partnership Incorporated as Free-standing Organization

Signing MOUThe U.S. National Academy of Sciences (NAS) has signed a memorandum of understanding with the non-profit University Industry Demonstration Partnership (UIDP) for ongoing cooperation and collaboration. The UIDP was incorporated earlier this year as a free-standing organization and will be fully independent on July 1, 2015. 

The UIDP, convened in 2006 as a project of the NAS’s Government-University-Industry Research Roundtable (GUIRR), is a forum where representatives from academia and industry work to strengthen their methods of collaboration and partnership on research and educational endeavors.  

GUIRR and UIDP plan to co-host periodic meetings and workshops, and cooperate on selected projects, on topics of interest to the academic and corporate sectors. The signed agreement calls for ongoing information exchange and mutual effort to reinforce the groups’ contributions on scientific matters of national importance.  

“The transition of the UIDP to independent status signals its strong success in providing services to its member companies and universities, and in disseminating excellent materials to the broader academic and industrial communities,” said Susan Sauer Sloan, Director of GUIRR, which includes many organizations involved in UIDP activities. 

UIDP President Tony Boccanfuso said, “Over the past decade, GUIRR carefully incubated the UIDP mission of fostering better ways of university-industry collaboration to advance science, to encourage innovation for the public good, and to help create an educated workforce.”
