The Role of Universities in Economic Development Webinar
Wednesday, 1/30/2019, 3:00pm. ARCHIVED EVENT
What is the role of universities in economic development? This question is becoming increasingly urgent in a political climate that is skeptical of hard-to-measure outcomes. 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.
After you register, you'll receive a confirmation and log-in instructions.
