Local governments of all sizes are facing increasing threats to their fiscal and economic health, community well-being, and environmental resources. These agencies often will work with researchers to determine how best to address these challenges.
This panel, hosted by the New Jersey State Policy Lab, included presentations from Elizabeth Bell, Assistant Professor at the University of Texas LBJ School of Public Affairs, and Aaron Deslatte, Ph.D., Associate Professor at the Indiana University O’Neill School of Public and Environmental Affairs. Each discussed their experiences handling researcher-practitioner partnerships with federal, state, and local agencies and provide recommendations for better tailoring research incentives in universities with research needs in communities.
