Promotion & Tenure – Innovation & Entrepreneurship (PTIE – pronounced “P-Tie”) is a global movement to support the inclusive recognition of innovation & entrepreneurship (I&E) impact by university faculty in promotion, tenure & advancement guidelines and practices. Led by Oregon State University, this effort is made possible by support from the National Science Foundation (Award # CNS-1936073). A key aspect of PTIE is the networked-systems approach it has taken through the nationwide PTIE coalition and PTIE stakeholder organizations. The outputs from this effort are disseminated through publications, biennial national conferences, periodic PTIE workshops and through its website.
Starting in 2020, PTIE organizers have held a biennial (every two years) national conference to enable researchers and administrators at universities along with representatives from stakeholder organizations, industry and government to share the latest outputs in this area and to learn about how to PTIE recommendations and principles to their organizations. In 2022, the conference was held July 25-27 at Skamania Lodge in Stevenson, WA.
