An Industry‐Government‐Academia Partnership to Develop Talent and Technology By Lueny Morell, Martina Trucco and Francisco Andrade, HP Labs Strategy and Innovation Office Since 2005, Hewlett Packard Laboratories (HP Labs) has been developing research collaborations with universities and public research centers in Mexico. The strategy has primarily focused on engaging Mexican engineering and science students in HP Labs’ projects aligning universities’ research interests to HP Labs’ research portfolio. In an effort to develop talent in Mexico, enhance the speed of innovation at HP Labs, and create new jobs in the region, this initiative has recently evolved to become a formal program sponsored by the Government of the State of Jalisco in Mexico. This paper will describe the history, steps and some of the outcomes of the newly‐established HP Guadalajara Prototyping Organization (GUAPO), a program developed and sponsored by HP Labs, recent Mexican engineering graduates and the government. It will also share some of the lessons learned, best practices and challenges in establishing and nurturing such a program. T his novel R&D and talent/technology development partnership model can help other companies and regions establish similar programs.
