University Research Parks are rapidly changing to meet the growing demands of the marketplace to continue to stay relevant, forward-looking and cutting-edge. This includes organizational, physical (space/building) partnering and/or human capital changes.

Adapting through the evolution is challenging, forcing leaders within the Research Park to examine current processes and strategies currently in place. This year’s conference in Oklahoma will address the current Research Park landscape, and provide insight and best practices on how Research Parks can thrive through the power of ingenuity. We are looking for dynamic and experienced speakers who can speak to environments/industries of change and how pioneering ingenuity in their respective company, nonprofit and/or organization proved to be successful. We are also looking for expert speakers for our new track, Innovation Districts.

Concurrent breakout sessions will be 60 minutes including all introductions and Q&A.

Important Deadlines to Remember:

Friday, May 13:                      Submissions Due 

Monday, May 30:                   Notification of Acceptance
Monday, September 12:        Presentations Due for Review and Confirmation
