February 2018

I recently returned from Washington, D.C., where I attended a meeting hosted by the Government-University-Industry Research Roundtable (GUIRR), a small but important group within the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine. This was a fascinating meeting with a focus on artificial intelligence and machine learning to accelerate translational research.

If you aren’t familiar with GUIRR, I encourage you to learn more. GUIRR helps to shape policy through direct engagement between the United States’ industry, government and university sectors. Its focus for more than 30 years has been keeping the research enterprise in our country healthy and robust.

Leading scientists, engineers, administrators and policymakers engage regularly at GUIRR meetings to explore critical issues, frame important questions and incubate activities of ongoing value in the science and technology community.

These council members, council associates and university-industry partners of GUIRR comprise the “who’s who” of research and policymaking. I am excited to announce U of I is joining this elite group. GUIRR is well-known for injecting imaginative thought into the system, finding common ground between science and policy, and ultimately providing benefit for the public at large. Our membership aligns well with our land-grant mission.

An excellent example of GUIRR’s beneficial work can be found in the proceedings of their recent workshop, titled “The Role of State Governments in Economic Development and R&D Competitiveness.” At this meeting, members and speakers discussed the ways in which economic development efforts in states and regions drive innovation and economic growth. It is a short and insightful read that underscores an important premise: We need to find, foster and form formidable collaborations within our state and industries that will support research, scholarship and creative activities that drive our university forward and benefit the people of Idaho.

I look forward to representing the University of Idaho’s research interests at future GUIRR meetings and increasing the U of Is presence in these national dialogs.

Go Vandals!
