    This paper presents preliminary work on the design and development of a visual tool, the Research Engagement Canvas (REC) to assist academics in collaborating with industry. A Design Science Research approach is used whereby contribution is made to the existing knowledge base through the design of an artifact (the REC) with a clear goal and utility. While it is generally recognised that University-Industry Collaboration is important for innovation, researchers lack clear guidance in how to go about developing collaborations. Our work aims to start addressing this gap through the REC. We present a rough sketch of a first version of the REC, which we intend to refine over time as we carry out further evaluation and collect feedback
