description
Academic Room (www.academicroom.com) is an online marketplace connecting industry with academic experts within communities of practice—ranging from economics and engineering to life sciences and medicine. Experts are a part of knowledge communities in which they curate content, interact with their peers and provide consulting services at one central location. Academic Room is the world's first marketplace where industry can directly hire the finest minds from academia for short-term projects. Industry has a tough time finding specialized academic talent to work on short-term projects. Academics too are increasingly finding it difficult to obtain tenure-track jobs and have no easy way to find relevant opportunities outside of academia. Academic Room solves this problem by creating an "oDesk for Academics" where industry may post its projects. Our platform—developed in the Harvard Innovation Lab—helps intelligently identify the best resources from a vast pool of academic talent. Academic Room was a finalist in 2012 Massachusetts Innovation and Technology Exchange (MITX) Awards and 2013 EdTech Digest Awards Program.
