National Academy of Engineering Regional Meeting Government-University-Industry Partnerships in Regional Innovation and Entrepreneurship April 18, 2012 Stamp Student Union, University of Maryland, College Park http://www.eng.umd.edu/html/nae/index.html Innovation and entrepreneurship have captured the attention of our nation because the future prosperity and quality of life of our citizens in this competitive world depend increasingly on the benefits derived from the development of ideas, products and processes of significant value. The knowledge economy of today relies on the translation of knowledge into value through innovative thinking and entrepreneurial action. Of all organizations in society research university communities possess the greatest assembly of assets necessary for innovation and entrepreneurship. They extend from human capital to knowledge capital to support services and facilities. Nonetheless, university engagement with industry and government is the key to imbuing budding entrepreneurs and innovators with real-world experiences, and facilitating the translation of ideas, inventions and creations into goods and services of value. This National Academy of Engineering Regional Meeting will explore this needed engagement of universities with industry and government with particular attention to identifying what works and what needs to be fixed. Session Topics: Government-University-Industry Partnerships in Regional Innovation and Entrepreneurship: What Works and What Doesn’t? Educating Next Generation Innovators and Entrepreneurs: Expanding Beyond Business, Science and Engineering.
