Non-Traditional Funding Models for a Shifting R&D Landscape

Session ID#: 26683

Session Description:
A new paradigm for R&D funding is emerging as public and private organizations seek to maintain their research portfolios and goals in the context of a more limited Federal R&D budget environment.  Increasingly, states, non-profit and non-governmental organizations, private companies, and consortia are generating new funding models to adapt to, and expand within, this resource limited environment. In this session, case studies that describe and evaluate emerging, non-traditional avenues for R&D funding and provide insights on how to navigate this changing landscape are of interest. Topics of interest include partnerships between public and private entities, state or federal government supported cost-sharing agreements, and collaborative research networks and partnerships. Case studies that address the challenges and opportunities associated with these, or other novel, collaborative R&D models and demonstrate how research output is disseminated to and used by the Federal government and the private sector are of particular interest.
