Webinar: Town Hall and Listening Session: Breaking Down Barriers Between Academia and Industry with the Help of University Admins

Thursday, June 13, 2024 - 1:00 - 2:00 p.m. ET

Join us for a live, interactive webinar with the Halo team!
In 2020, Halo launched with its first RFP from Baxter in the NACRO newsletter. Four years later, more than 5,000 proposals have been submitted on Halo from more than a 1,000 universities across 100+ countries. We owe a big part of that growth to university admins, and especially the members of NACRO.
As with any marketplace, new challenges have arisen as the platform has scaled. Some of these include:
  • How can we keep admins like you updated on the connections and partnerships forming between your faculty and our sponsors?
  • How can we help corporations find academic partners on topics that are highly sensitive and confidential?
  • How can we help universities and their faculty build new relationships with sponsors?
  • And most importantly, how can we ensure your faculty receive a timely response from sponsors?

In this virtual town hall, Halo’s CEO and Founder Kevin Leland will introduce some of the measures Halo is taking to improve the experience for university admins and their faculty, expand the types of academic/industry partnerships that can be formed, and new features for university admins to track the status of faculty proposals. Looking to the future, we will also open it up to the audience to learn how else Halo can support you in your roles and drive value for you and your university.
