UIDP provides a forum for university and industry representatives to meet and discuss contracting and intellectual property policy, publication and technology transfer preferences, and other issues. An essential part of the forum is its unique project process. The UIDP’s unique action-oriented approach provides an opportunity to test potential solutions for concrete projects that result in proofs of concepts and best practices.
The partnership is not discipline-specific and includes representatives from public and private universities (both large and small) and companies from sectors such as agriculture, the automobile industry, chemicals, consumer products, information technology, life science, and manufacturing. More than 70 members are currently active, representing diverse national leadership from industry and universities with strategic engagement from the nonprofit and public sectors.
