why industry comes to academia
Why Industry Comes to Academia
  • Expose management to leading-edge thinking, technology
  • Gain insight from internationally-recognized experts
  • Strengthen strategic decision-making:
    • development of new products and processes
    • implementation of innovative management practices

academia s research engine
Academia’s Research Engine
  • US universities are estimated to perform $50.6 billion in R&D in 2009.
    • Recent trend has been approx. 75% basic, 25% applied.
  • Academia continues to perform more than half of the nation’s total basic research.
    • Basic research drives new knowledge, innovation.
    • Industry is weakening its concentration in support of basic research.
  • Federal government continues to provide the majority of funding for academic R&D.
    • Estimated federal share of academic R&D funding in 2009 is 60%.
    • This represents a 0.6% increase from 2008.
  • Estimated industry funding of academic R&D is $3.1 billion in 2009.
    • This represents a 3.9% increase from 2008.
    • Interest continues to grow in participating in collaborative research programs involving industry and universities.
    • Industrial support accounts for the smallest share of academic R&D funding.
  • Academic R&D will account for an estimated 13.2% of total R&D performed in 2009.
  • Industry continues to decrease its support of basic research.

  • ILP member organizations account for approximately 31% of all corporate gifts and single-sponsored research expenditures at MIT
  • Government and NGOs can now take advantage of the rich history and deep expertise of ILP to build and strengthen regional competitiveness
strengthening regional competitiveness
Strengthening Regional Competitiveness
  • Creates an environment that fosters innovation and encourages entrepreneurship and job creation
  • Regional, economic, business, and trade development groups have long visited the Cambridge/Boston area to learn from the areas’ success
  • Universities play a vial role in fostering, sustaining, and propagating the entrepreneurial and innovation-related activities of many such regional economies
  • MIT is the epicenter of the east coast of the US’s innovation ecosystem
  • Economic development visitors to the area wish to replicate the complex mix of new business creation and idea development to create meaningful clusters of competence that could stimulate further investment and job creation
kauffman foundation 2009 study
Kauffman Foundation 2009 Study

“Conservatively, if the active companies founded by MIT graduates formed an independent nation, their revenues would make that nation at least the seventeenth largest economy in the world. A less conservative direct extrapolation of the underlying survey data boosts the numbers to 25,800 currently active companies founded by MIT alumni that employ about 3.3 million people and generate annual sales of $2 trillion, producing the equivalent of the eleventh largest economy in the world.”
