Modes of collaboration between industry and academia: a Statistician's view

Waite, T (University of Southampton)
Monday 25 March 2013, 15:10-15:30

Seminar Room 1, Newton Institute


In this talk, we provide a personal perspective on the gains to be made from effective collaboration between industry and academia. For industry, academia can provide a flexible resource making innovation more efficient. For academia, industrial projects give an opportunity to translate recent research advances into real-world change and demonstrate impact. The interaction may also help shape the future direction of research programmes. We discuss some of the non-technical aspects of academic-industrial relations, including preconceptions about the nature of the contribution that can be made by academia, in particular by research Statisticians. The interplay between real-world scientific problems and broadly generic statistical solutions will be demonstrated through an accessible, high-level overview of a topic from the presenter's own research in experimental design. The aim is to illustrate one manner of communicating across the divide between disciplines.
