Office of Industry Engagement

Office of Industry Engagement
​The Office of Industry Engagement is an office under the Office of the Vice President for Research and Economic Development (OVPRED) established to promote and foster all types of industry-based research, including partnerships, and collaborations, assist with on-boarding of new PI’s and to work to improve institutional efficiencies.  As an industry-specific research office, the OIE can assist in managing these delicate, but mission-vital partnerships and champion this critical component of UAB’s research industry-based research portfolio.
UAB employees interested in developing research collaborations with industry, or who are facing institutional barriers to research success, can contact the OIE at 934-3980 for assistance. Likewise, for companies wanting to conduct research with UAB, the OIE can serve as a portal to UAB’s research community and administrative services.
