  • International Programs (Nirma, LACCEI)
  • NSF PIRE Program
  • Industry Seminars (Motorola, Citrix, Pace Micro)
  • NSF Industry/University Cooperative Research
    Center (NEW!)
  • Online and Distance Learning Programs

13
New Trend The Entrepreneurial University
  • Industry trends research funding drastically
    reduced chances for universities
  • Universities can only effectively become
    incubators of entrepreneurship and innovation if
    they themselves practice entrepreneurship
  • This re-conceptualization involves
    non-traditional, often radical university
    arrangements

14
Different Strategies to Redesign
University/Industry Relationship
  • Abolishing academic departments, creating new
    ones, finding new academic disciplines (ASU)
  • Global university concept (GMU) using wide
    range of technologies and communication
    strategies to link individuals, localities,
    national units, multi-national businesses, and
    trans-national regions
  • Erasmus University in Rotterdam a new education
    curriculum that trains students in
    entrepreneurship

15
FAU (CEECS) Strategy
  • At College level Innovation Leadership Program
  • NSF Industry/University Cooperative Research
    Center
  • Collaboration with RD Park at FAU
  • Industry Advisory Board and Industry Affiliates
    Program
  • Embedding companies in the Department (Department
    is an incubator!)

16
Industry/University Cooperative Research Center
  • From NSF page The I/UCRC program develops
    long-term partnerships among industry, academe,
    and government
  • Through innovative education of talented
    graduate and undergraduate students, the I/UCRCs
    are providing the next generation of scientists
    and engineers with a broad, industrially oriented
    perspective on engineering research and
    practice.
  • Currently there are approximately 50 I/UCRCs
