Mapping Innovation Ecosystems Pilot Thriving in the innovation economy requires effective collaboration as well as economic development policies that facilitate the movement of intellectual property and human capital between academia, industry, and our federal labs and institutions. It often also involves the establishment of regional innovation networks to generate new jobs and wealth. In 2017, Innovation Business Partners, Inc. (IBP) worked with GUIRR to conduct a pro bono pilot using Innovation Network Mapping and IBP’s concept of an Innovation Genotype™.
International Research Collaborations In an increasingly interconnected world, science and technology research is more often transecting international boundaries and involving researchers from multiple nations. This paradigm provides both new opportunities and new challenges. The GUIRR International Research Collaborations Working Group (known as the I-Group) has set out to explore ways to advance and improve international research collaborations.
Federal Demonstration Partnership (FDP) The Federal Demonstration Partnership (FDP) is a cooperative initiative among 10 federal agencies and 155 institutional recipients of federal funds; its purpose is to reduce the administrative burdens associated with research grants and contracts. GUIRR serves as the neutral convener of FDP.
