Working With Industry 101

Click here to register for the next workshop series starting October 22, 2020.

In association with participation in this 100% virtual short course series, IREO is offering a limited number of stipends of $3,000 to support efforts to develop private sector collaboration. To be eligible for the funding the faculty-trainee team must attend all online sessions; funds are somewhat flexible, due to the general inability to travel at this time but usage must be approved by IREO prior to disbursement.

This 4-part course will take place via Zoom from 3:00-5:00pm on October 22 & 29 and November 5 & 12. We strongly encourage faculty to bring a senior graduate student or postdoctoral trainee for joint participation; this is a key element of strong industry partnerships. Course descriptions follow:


Class 1: Introduction to Working with Industry & Promotion of Your Research Expertise

Class 2: Finding the Right Partner & Specific Contacts

Class 3: Process, Proposal, Timelines & Statements of Work: Getting to the Project

Class 4: Contracting & Best Practices for Managing Outputs


Space is limited so reserve your spot now! Email with any questions, or please use the link at the top of the page to register. Please also list the name of the trainee who will join you; your trainee may also complete the form on your behalf.
