GUIRR Council Meeting
Highly Integrative Basic and Responsive (HIBAR) Research: Partnerships for Discovery and Innovation
June 27, 2017; 1:30 - 5:10 pm
Room 120, National Academy of Sciences Building

Webcast Registration


Academic, business, and government leaders are developing fresh research strategies to promote innovation and discovery. Their shared goal, building off strong historical precedents, is to achieve the twin-win of breakthrough research and societal benefits. Fundamental research carefully linked to real-world problem contexts appears to produce stronger theories and more societally valuable results. The term Highly Integrative Basic and Responsive (HIBAR) Research conveys these ambitious aspirations.

Please join GUIRR for a half-day workshop to consider strategies to more reliably produce HIBAR research: (1) Partnerships with business and government (cities, counties, state, federal), as well as non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and (2) Policy changes to campus hiring/tenure/promotion rules so as to support teamwork and problem orientation that includes off-campus partnerships and on-campus collaborations.
