GUIRR Members' Meeting

HIBAR Workshop Banner June 2017
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.

GUIRR hosted a half-day workshop to consider strategies to more reliably produce HIBAR research: (1) Partnerships with business and government (cities, counties, state, federal), as well as non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and (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.
