Hyatt Regency Crystal City at Reagan National Airport • Arlington, VA

Join Us September 16-18, 2020

The Innovation and Entrepreneurship Summit will be held September 16-18, 2020 in Arlington, VA at the Hyatt Regency Crystal City. Oregon State University is proud to host this event with support from the National Science Foundation (NSF) Award # CNS-1936073. The purpose of this summit is to convene the broad spectrum of higher education to discuss the value and inclusion of evidence-based data, experimental knowledge and impact outcomes derived from innovation and entrepreneurial (I&E) achievements as additional components in promotion and tenure (P&T) decisions for higher education nationally. The constituents to be involved in this Summit range from primarily undergraduate institutions (PUIs) to research 1 (R1) doctoral universities including minority-serving institutions such as historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs), tribal colleges and universities (TCUs) and Hispanic serving institutions (HSIs), as well as organizations directly impacting this community.

The overarching goals of this summit are to:

(a) Disseminate the current status of I&E within P&T among universities from across the Nation;

(b) Provide case studies from individual faculty, administrators and industry leaders demonstrating the impact of I&E within P&T;

(c) Foster communication and information sharing among the higher education ecosystem on I&E;

(d) Develop best practices and road map for individual universities to augment their individual P&T guidelines to more inclusively support I&E among their faculty.
