Event Details

 
Please join the UAB CCTS on Tuesday, August 20, 4:45 p.m. until the discussion concludes, for refreshments and to learn more about i2i--short for Invention2Innovation--a new initiative aimed at tranforming UAB research into start-ups. The program aims to link the local business community to UAB research activities.
 
The year-long program began last September; we invite you to come hear from participants--students and faculty alike--about their experiences in i2i. Get first-hand insight about team science and what it takes to innovate across boundaries. Hear successful strategies for working in collaborative, cross-disciplinary teams, and what it takes to innovate.
 

The i2i program has three main objectives:

1)      Scout innovative inventions with strong commercial potential from sources such as existing UAB intellectual property and adjacent possible ideas (i.e., ideas arising from existing technologies);

2)      Educate scientists and potential (student) entrepreneurs in technology innovation through classroom instruction and experiential learning in the UAB Life Science Entrepreneurship Program (UAB LSEP); and

3)      Engage mentors from local business networks to connect regularly with E-Teams at The Edge of Chaos, which is a unique UAB collaborative space designed to stimulate creativity and business networking.

We look forward to seeing you on Tuesday evening.
