A new seven-part webseries, from the University-Industry Development Partnership (UIDP), will provide a unique look at how to create better research partnerships between corporations and universities. This series focuses on the relationship between the researcher and the industry partner, and is recommended for: faculty researchers, research center directors, administration from the offices of research, professionals working with sponsored projects, tech transfer officers, and those who cultivate, negotiate, or manage industry partnerships.
Jennifer Silva, MD, and Vijay Ramani, PhD, WashU’s Faculty Fellows in Entrepreneurship, will be attending select sessions to answer your questions.
