The management and cost of laboratory waste associated with the conduct of research : report of a workshop by Government-University-Industry Research Roundtable( )

3 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 1,134 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On February 10 and 11, 1994, the Government-University-Industry Research Roundtable (GUIRR) hosted a workshop on the management and cost of laboratory waste associated with the conduct of research. The goal was to identify what, if any, role the Roundtable should play in addressing concerns that waste-handling requirements are becoming so stringent and costly that they are having adverse effects on the pace and scope of research. In particular, the participants were encouraged to identify steps that research laboratories might take to improve waste-handling methods, reduce the volume of waste, eliminate nonproductive requirements, increase awareness about the importance of proper waste management, and enhance communication among all relevant parties without compromising workplace safety and environmental protection
Culture matters : international research collaboration in a changing world : summary of a workshop by Susan Sauer Sloan( )

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 925 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Culture Matters is the summary of a workshop convened by the Government-University-Industry Research Roundtable (GUIRR) in July 2013 to address how culture and cultural perception influence and impact the process by which research agreements are made and negotiated across international boundaries. In this workshop, "Culture Matters: An Approach to International Research Agreements", representatives from around the world and from GUIRR's three constituent sectors - government, university, and industry - gathered to provide input into four specific meeting tracks or domains. The tracks focused on research and agreements affecting or involving people/human subjects; environmental and natural resources; science, engineering, and manufacturing; and agriculture and animal issues. This report examines each of these domains and the role that culture and cultural expectations may have in the forging and implementation of international research agreements."--Publisher's description
Simplified and standardized model agreements for university-industry cooperative research by New York, Ny Industrial Research Inst.( )

3 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 162 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The simplified and standardized models of university-industry cooperative research agreements that are presented are the products of a joint effort of the Government-University-Industry Research Roundtable and the Industrial Research Institute. These two organizations approached the task of developing these models with the goal to maximize productive research collaboration between industry and academia by streamlining the negotiation process for reaching a formal agreement. Some of the intended impacts from use of the documents are: a decrease in the time and effort required to reach an agreement; partners in research programs, rather than developing a contract from scratch, will use much of the model and devote their energies to negotiating specific features; and companies and universities new to research alliances will have a sense of what is reasonable to consider in establishing a contract. Two models are presented. For the purposes of basic research support, simple research grants between universities and companies, as illustrated in part I, may be most effective. Where complex issues are raised by the parties, a research contract will be the most appropriate instrument. A "typical first approach" to such a contract is illustrated in part ii. (Author/CW)
Best practices in state and regional innovation initiatives : competing in the 21st century( Book )

3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 86 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""Most of the policy discussion about stimulating innovation has focused on the federal level. This study focuses on the significant activity at the state level, with the goal of improving the public's understanding of key policy strategies and exemplary practices. Based on a series of workshops and conferences that brought together policymakers along with leaders of industry and academia in a select number of states, the study highlights a rich variety of policy initiatives underway at the state and regional level to foster knowledge based growth and employment. Perhaps what distinguishes this effort at the state level is most of all the high degree of pragmatism. Operating out of necessity, innovation policies at the state level often involve taking advantage of existing resources and recombining them in new ways, forging innovative partnerships among universities, industry and government organizations, growing the skill base, and investing in the infrastructure to develop new technologies and new industries. Many of these initiatives are being guided by leaders from the private sector and universities. The objective of Best Practices in State and Regional Innovation Initiatives: Competing in the 21st Century is not to do an empirical review of the inputs and outputs of various state programs. Nor is it to evaluate which programs are superior. Indeed, some of the notable successes, such as the Albany nanotechnology cluster, represent a leap of leadership, investment, and sustained commitment that has had remarkable results in an industry that is actively pursued by many countries. The study's goal is to illustrate the approaches taken by a variety of highly diverse states as they confront the increasing challenges of global competition for the industries and jobs of today and tomorrow."--Publisher's description
Industrial perspectives on innovation and interactions with universities : summary of interviews with senior industrial officials by New York, NY Industrial Research Inst.( Book )

2 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 38 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A study was done of the views of senior research managers in industry on the roles of business and universities in innovation, techical change, and competitiveness. This effort stemmed from an earlier set of roundtable discussions on university-industry research alliances and sought to add a stronger component of industrial views to an ongoing discussion. The views summarized come from interviews with 17 senior research managers representing a range of fields of research as well as a variety of sizes and types of companies. The results of these interviews were summarized and reviewed by the interviewees as well as members of the roundtable meeting together. Central themes that emerged from the interviews included the following: most innovation occurs through incremental improvements to existing products or processes; industry is the primary source for innovation; the primary role of universities is in training and education; and industry needs to collaborate with universities, other companies, in-house research divisions, vendors, and federal laboratories to maximize knowledge transfer and to identify emerging new technologies. The views show that a difference of opinion exists between university and industry officials. Included in appendixes are a list of those interviewed and questions used in the interviews. (JB)

Nurturing science and engineering talent : a discussion paper by Washington, Dc. Government-University-Industry Research Roundtable National Academy of Sciences( Book )

1 edition published in 1987 in English and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Government-University-Industry Research Roundtable was created to provide a forum where scientists, engineers, administrators, and policy makers from government, universities, and industry can come together on an ongoing basis to explore ways to improve the productivity of the nation's research enterprise. Roundtable Working Group One, which deals with issues relating to the development, identification, recruitment, and retention of science and engineering talent, has been examining the broad outlook for science and engineering talent. Three themes dominated the group's deliberations: the status of the science and engineering talent pool, factors affecting decisions of students to pursue science and engineering careers, and the effectiveness of special programs to nurture science and engineering talent. This paper was drafted as a vehicle for discussions with organizations and individuals that can have a direct role in the policies and operation of the educational system. Through such discussion, the Working Group hopes to stimulate actions that will enhance the quality and quantity of students electing to pursue science and engineering careers. The specific actions will vary by target audience and by sponsoring group. The Working Group hopes that the sections of this paper on Career Choice and on Interventions will provide a starting point for the design of appropriate strategies for action. (Cw)
New alliances and partnerships in American science and engineering by Howard G Schneiderman( Book )

1 edition published in 1986 in English and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The last decade has seen a significant increase in industrial funding of university research and in the number and variety of arrangements that involve collaboration between universities and industry. The Government-University-Industry Research Roundtable is specially interested in this development. Working toward some answers, the Roundtable has initiated an organized inquiry under the auspices of its Working Group on New Alliances and Partnerships. This initial phase involved, first, a review of historical materials as well as more contemporary analyses and commentaries bearing on the subject. This document is a report on the initial phase of the investigation. Part I, "Historical Precedent and the Current Context," is taken from the background paper by Dorothy Nelkin and Richard Nelson. In Part ii, "Disucssion of the Issues," the central issues raised during the conference on December 5 are summarized. Additional commentary on some of the issues by members of the Roundtable Working Group is included in Part ii. Part iii is a brief commentary on the inquiry written by Nelkin and Nelson. The appendices include the Conference Agenda, the descriptions of 21 university-industry programs that formed the basis of the inquiry, and the list of conference participants. (Author/CW)
