TLA Invention to Impact Workshop Series: Show Me the Funding

How can your research be harnessed to create the greatest impact for you, the UA and society? This year's Tech Launch Arizona lunchtime workshops will cover the essential knowledge you need to bring your research to the world through commercialization. Each engaging one-hour workshop will include two 15-minute quick-hit presentations alternating with interactive discussions and activities. After each workshop, TLA staff will remain for an optional open Q&A.

The second workshop is titled "Show Me the Funding: How to Win at Industry Sponsored Research."

How can you most effectively win industry funding for your research projects? At this interactive workshop, you'll learn about the perceptions, misconceptions and most effective strategies for engaging with business as you pursue funding dollars. 

Topics will include:

  • Industry-sponsored research and perspectives on funding.
  • The partnering continuum.
  • Qualifying and developing relationships.
  • Leveraging UA resources.
