Proceedings of the 2016 University-Industry Interaction Conference
In these proceedings, we present the vibrant crossroads of academia and industry at the 2016 University-Industry Interaction Conference. Comprising 26 academic papers and 21 practitioner papers, this volume embodies the essence of knowledge exchange and innovation.
In our academic track, we delve into a rich tapestry of subjects, including the impact of location on university-business relationships, the role of digital storytelling in innovation, and the influence of environmental and internal factors on entrepreneurial universities. We explore themes like research partnerships, leadership skills, and the elusive expertise of big-picture thinkers. These academic insights lay the foundation for transformative dialogues between theory and practice.
The practitioner papers provide a practical lens on topics such as creating entrepreneurial ecosystems, management-driven university-industry interactions, and optimizing patent portfolios. Additionally, we gain valuable perspectives on technology transfer, collaborative innovation, and successful professional development programs in business and industry.
As we navigate through these proceedings, we extend our heartfelt appreciation to the authors, reviewers, and conference participants for their unwavering dedication to advancing the dialogue between academia and industry.
