Transformational Media Lab Director Beth Karlin recently spoke at the International Studies Association (ISA) Conference, “Global IR and Regional Worlds: A New Agenda for International Studies,” which took place February 19-21 in New Orleans, Louisiana. At the conference, Dr. Karlin presented a paper entitled, “Engaged Scholarship as an Alternative to Public-Private Partnerships,” co-authored with CUSA Research Affiliate Kristen Goodrich and four undergraduate Hazard Scholars.
The paper discusses the alternative approach to public-private partnerships by engaging the academic community. To enhance both the speed and reach of emerging technologies from the lab to the public, public-public partnerships such as CUSA’s FloodRISE initiative have “the potential to serve a leading role in developing new models for applied university research, enabling a enduring and sustainable impact on some of our most pressing issues.”
