Partner Hero PhotoDevelopment of a concierge service approach to collaborations will become central to the mission of the UAB IIE.

UAB’s commitment to economic development is aligned with regional and state strategies, including "Blueprint Birmingham" — the community’s growth strategy led by Birmingham Business Alliance — and Accelerate Alabama, which seeks to drive recruitment of new projects, business retention and develop home-grown start-ups.

The Institute will pursue new strategies to identify the most pressing challenges facing area companies that can be tackled by UAB expertise and develop new processes to ensure greater flexibility within those collaborations.

The IIE also will foster and expand translational research-based partnerships, such as those with Southern Research and Hudson Alpha.
