Boosting the Value of Industry Partnerships

Monday, Mar 25, 2024, 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM ET

The flat-lining federal research funding environment has forced many universities to use their own funds to close funding gaps. As research costs continue to rise, chief research officers feel the increasing pressure of this unsustainable funding model for long-term growth.

Unfortunately, beyond one-time increases, the deceleration of federal funding appears to be the new normal. As a result, other external funding sources (e.g., industry, nonprofit, philanthropy) present the greatest growth potential.

CROs must identify emerging demand and link ongoing university research to the needs of prospective partners. In addition, CROs must present a single face to industry partners that establishes the benefits of working with their universities and makes the case for a long-term partnership. Developing processes and narratives that fit the needs of industry partners separates universities with a high level of industry partnership success from those that struggle to realize significant gains.


Join our experts and your CRO peers in conversation about practices to help you achieve your growth targets through more strategic recruitment and management.
