The Translational Research Center at the Fox School of Business is committed to facilitating conversations between scholarship and industry. 

You are invited to participate in the 2021 Impact Summit, where we will discuss the ways that we can better bridge the gap between academia and industry. Business executives, faculty and doctoral students are strongly encouraged to attend.

Listen to a moderated round table discussion with industry and academic association presidents addressing the challenges and opportunities that arise when having critical conversations between industry and academia. Then join in breakout conversations to discuss how best to encourage collaborations between industry and academia.

Your participation would involve sharing best practices as well as the factors that can facilitate collaborations between academic and industry.
