University, Industry, and Government Partnership: A Science and Technology Roadmap to Drive Innovation – APLU 2014

Download “University, Industry, and Government Partnership: A Science and Technology Roadmap to Drive Innovation” from the Association of Public and Land-Grant Universities (APLU) Annual Meeting 2014, Orlando, Florida: [PDF]

Hosted by: Elsevier Research Intelligence

The Illinois Science & Technology Coalition (ISTC) in September 2014 issued the Illinois Science & Technology Roadmap (S&T Roadmap), an innovative, data-driven report that identifies key technology areas where Illinois has a comparative advantage in innovation.  As one of the Roadmap’s key data partners, Elsevier helped ISTC identify the science and technology research strengths of Illinois.  Drawing on data from Scopus, the world’s largest abstract and citation database, Elsevier and ISTC analyzed indicators of research output and citation impact, cross-sector collaboration, patent citations, and research usage to determine what are Illinois’s main competitive research strengths vis-à-vis other peer states and the US as a whole.

You will see results from the S&T Roadmap and learn how universities’ research offices, tech transfer and commercialization offices, and corporate relations as well as those from industry (tech/company incubators, VC funders) and government (national labs, Department of Commerce, etc.) can work together to impact innovation at the state level.
