The Government-University-Industry Research Roundtable

The Government-University-Industry Research Roundtable convenes senior-most representatives from government, universities, and industry to define and explore critical issues related to the national and global science and technology agenda that are of shared interest; to frame the next critical question stemming from current debate and analysis; and to incubate activities of on-going value to the stakeholders. GUIRR provides a unique forum for dialogue among top government, university and industry leaders of the national science and technology enterprise. We provide a forum like no other, where a mix of sectors come together to understand how the other side thinks.
