Knowledge Transfer Mission Statement: Develop effective mechanisms for interactions between the Center and external stake-holders to support the exchange of knowledge, data, and the application of new technologies.
To achieve our knowledge transfer mission, we identify various forms of knowledge transfer and associated stake-holders. Outflow of knowledge takes the form of disclosures over the public domain (including publications, software tools, instructional material, etc.), licensing and patenting, externship programs, and technical collaborations. Inflow of knowledge is achieved through industrial roundtables, researchers-in-residence programs, and contributions to the Science of Information hub. We identify stakeholders associated with each of these mechanisms and develop programs to engage these stakeholders. We sustain and build on these relationships by structured outreach programs.
