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
Recording of the National Town Hall Webinar now available. Learn about new, innovative models for U-I collaboration!
For many universities, traditional strategies for negotiating sponsored research and license agreements with industry are not producing the desired results. In response, some universities are developing new models that facilitate industry engagement, catalyze the depth and breadth of collaborative arrangements and accelerate the commercialization of basic and applied research. Join representatives from two universities pioneering innovative university-industry collaboration to learn how their new approaches are helping them achieve their academic and research goals.
