A. Research Partners

Successful research partnerships demonstrate tangible benefits to all of the partners involved. At CUTE, we are eager that for us and our partners to enhance their capacity and learn from each other's involvement. We believe there are several tangible benefits for all partners. The knowledge and skills of partners to work collaboratively and in more participatory ways will help strengthen our ability to gain a more complex understanding of each other's strengths and limitations. The ability and willingness to serve as primary resources for one another will help us reconsidering the appropriateness of our measures and techniques in light of new perspectives. The relationships and support for each other's work as well as the establishment of new collaborative efforts through increased networking and collaboration among the partners will enable all partners to gain or enhance needed competencies.

CUTE and our institutional partners will:

  • Learn more about local resources and services
  • Gain understanding of academia expectations and how interventions in other communities may or may not apply to local circumstances

CUTE and our industry partners will:

  • Gain understanding of industry trends, forecast and dynamics and how certain decisions about research design could impact the credibility of the results
  • See evidence of how their research process can improve design of experiences
  • Obtain data that validates their concerns to the "outside world" and provides "proof" that policymakers, the media, and other high-level decision makers require before they believe that the issue deserves their attention
  • See resulting benefits in the community

In order to ensure that the principles and operating procedures adopted by the partnership are being followed, and that an effective partnership is being established and maintained, there are several business models that CUTE Center adopts to discuss partnerships with both institutional and industry partners. Please contact us for more information on the models available. As partnerships and their membership progress over time, we believe it is especially important to document decisions and their rationale. Documentation helps partnerships to create a mutual understanding, and also serve as a record of the decisions made by the partnership, should conflicts arise in the future regarding a particular issue or decision. All partners are encouraged to be involved in the Define, Develop, and Deliver stages, and to apply findings to make changes in the partnership process, as appropriate.
