Workshop Agenda

Industry-University Research Collaborations: Opportunities, Expectations, and Impediments

November 28-30, 1995

Duke University

Durham, North Carolina

Industrial Research Institute and the Government-University-Industry Research Roundtable and the Council on Competitiveness

The number of research partnerships between universities and companies is increasing rapidly in response to the growth of knowledge, our quickly evolving marketplaces, and the limited growth in funding. Yet, partnerships remain experiments and are raising many practical as well as policy-related questions.

Forty-one percent of the Nation's fastest growing companies have partnerships with colleges and universities—and boast productivity rates 59 percent higher than their peers without such relationships. However, of those companies that use college and university resources, about half say barriers limit their partnership's effectiveness . . .

This workshop agenda will concentrate both on the important and urgent needs of companies and universities resulting from recent and increasing economic pressures, and on those collaborative approaches that can attain the objectives of both entities.
