Sponsored Post advertising Canada Persia
It has been widely acknowledged that there is a gap between the way research and scholarship from academia is understood and utilized in industry. However, effective collaborations between academia and industry have the potential of boosting economic growth and the strategic development of organizations. When educational institutions and industry merge, both have the opportunity to create a substantial and sustainable win-win situation for all. In this panel discussion, panelists will highlight four DEIB-related, collaborative projects designed to strengthen the bridge between academia and industry.
