University of Iowa

Webinar series on University-Industry Research Partnerships begins on February 7, 2018

Partnerships between university researchers and industry representatives are attractive for people on both sides, but forming effective partnerships—and taking into account sometimes differing values and interests—can make them tricky to manage.

seven-part webinar series offered by the University-Industry Demonstration Partnership will explore how to create better research partnerships between corporations and universities. Over the lunch hour starting on February 7, 2018, the series will explore the most critical considerations for creating win-win relationships, including managing expectations, establishing contacts, preparing proposals, negotiating IP, and addressing contracting issues.

University of Iowa faculty, staff, and students are invited to attend the webinars in the Northwestern Room (345) of the Iowa Memorial Union (IMU) and ask questions of UI staff in the Division of Sponsored Programs and UI Research Foundation after the presentation. Registration is not required and sponsorship is provided by the Office of the Vice President for Research and Economic Development.

The webinar dates are as follows: February 7, February 21, March 7, March 21, April 4, April 25, and May 2. Additional information about each session is available here: https://research.uiowa.edu/impact/news/webinar-series-will-explore-how-create-better-university-industry-research-partnerships.
