Google’s Engagement With Universities – 2.30pm Thursday 14th April In LR6

David Harper & Michel Benard, EMEA University Relations, Google

In this talk, David and Michael will cover Google’s mission, products and approach to engineering and research. Then, through a walkthrough of Google’s new external research site (, they will describe the various ways in which Google engages with universities, and with academics in particular.  In the final part of the talk, they will compare the two main ways that Google funds research, namely by gift and by contract, introduce the Master Sponsored Research Agreement, and describe how this simplifies setting up contract research projects.
Afterwards, there will be a Q&A session.
