Yes, there are many ways academics can contribute. Look for example at 
the work Robin Marx did on structured QUIC logs formats and 
visualization tools. Part of his PhD, but also a very valuable 
contribution to the working group, with many implementation 
standardizing on the log format that he proposed and running his tools. 
That was great.
