Jason Owen-Smith explores this topic in depth in his new book, Research Universities and the Public Good. Join us for an overview of the topic and a conversation about how to use the data you get from IRIS to demonstrate the contributions your institution makes to the region and to industry in a webinar on Wednesday, January 30, 3-4 pm EST.
