Invention 2 Innovation (i2i) CCTS August Forum (no registration required)
Tuesday, August 20, 2013 from 4:45 PM to 6:00 PM (CDT)
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.
