University-Industry Open Innovation Partnerships: Identify Corporate Needs and Craft Win-Win Agreements

Open innovation (OI) partnerships are becoming a more popular option among potential industry partners, who are seeking out these less restrictive arrangements as a more efficient, productive, and cost-effective way to tap into university skill sets, knowledge, and technologies that may be lacking in-house.

But what are the keys to attracting these open innovation deals, and how are they best structured and managed? To answer those questions and provide keen insights into how universities can attract and build open innovation collaborations, we’re partnering with a leading expert on OI who manages open innovation deals at one of the world’s leading technology companies.

You’re invited to join Dr. Santohk Badesha, manager of open innovation at Xerox Corporation, for this webinar event that will provide an inside look at industry’s wants, needs, and expectations in creating open innovation partnerships: University-Industry Open Innovation Partnerships: Identify Corporate Needs and Craft Win-Win Agreements, scheduled for October 30th.

Dr. Badesha will share lessons learned from his expansive career on how to secure funding for projects, understanding the teams concept, and creating value from technologies transferred to business teams for monetization. Attendees will also gain critical insights into how OI partnerships can co-create valuable intellectual property, gain joint funding opportunities from state and federal agencies, and secure external visibility.
