Panel: Driving Innovation through University-Industry Collaboration

University and industry collaboration allows both parties to rely on each other for their strengths. Industry has the funding for research and the experience to commercialize a product. Universities are research powerhouses that can tackle the in-the-trenches work to invent, develop, and test products. As we see more opportunities to foster university-industry collaboration, this panel will discuss mutually beneficial collaborations including more innovation-centric approaches to engaging with industry, opening more spaces for private-public collaborative innovation, and more ground-breaking applied research that has major social, environmental, and economic benefits.
