How to get research funding from industry

The 2-day private sector collaboration workshop for scientists

Adding research funding from the private sector is a lucrative option that is not pursued by many researchers. One of the biggest reasons this option is overlooked is a lack of understanding about how companies function and how an academic researcher might bridge the culture differences to make useful connections. This workshop provides practical advice on how to identify and build valuable private sector research collaborations.
