University-Industry Relationships, Simplified
Let’s face it – research universities are complex. They can be hard to engage and even more difficult for non-academics to navigate. At Duke, we examined these barriers and designed a solution around them. Our approach simplifies and accelerates mutually beneficial relationships with industry. Each of our topic-focused industry affiliate programs is a structured gateway that streamlines access to the Duke thought leaders, research talent and high-impact research areas most relevant and meaningful to you.
