Abstract

The pairing of a commercial organisation with an academic institution is a typical example of a symbiotic relationship. Commercial organisations dedicate money, time, and often data into a university project with the ultimate goal of a financial return on their prudent investments. Academic institutions welcome these relationships as it supports their research in a field where obtaining funding is extremely competitive. Specifically in the field of visualisation, the culture, visions, and goals of both academia and industry differ in unique ways. In this position paper we explore the dichotomy of interests between the two groups, based on first hand experience and interviews, deriving recommendations for any organisation considering entering into a working relationship with either party.
