Case Studies of Practice-Academe Collaboration

The IFAC Industry Committee is attempting to determine what leads to success, or not, with practice/academic collaboration related to control and automation. The hope is to identify and share best practices (what to do, and what not to do) to enable others to create and sustain successful collaborations. We invite the reader here to use this link to provide your input on practice-academic collaborations:  The survey might take from 5 to 30 minutes, depending on what you wish to provide. The survey will remain open through April 30, 2021.
