Forming Science-Industry Research Collaborations

  • Stanford Center on Longevity (map)

Unfortunately, collaborations between social scientists and private sector companies are limited to occasional consulting and proprietary research. Academic studies using private-sector settings and data are difficult to establish, limited by complex privacy concerns, logistical issues and mutual distrust about how the findings might be used, yet these collaborations represent extraordinary opportunities to answer important questions about behavior that predict long-term health, social, and financial outcomes.

In this 2-day workshop at Stanford University, early-career researchers will learn from senior academics and industry representatives that have engaged in successful collaborations.
