Description

Come and learn about the Core Research Facilities at UMass Lowell while networking with other technology innovators and take a tour of our labs. This is an opportunity for current and prospective industry users, faculty, and our professional staff to interact and expand relationships within our community. Our program will also include 90 second flash talks and poster presentations by CRF users who have worked with us to accelerate their research. You will also learn about the MA Innovation Voucher Program which offers deep discounts off CRF user rates to small & mid-sized companies based in Massachusetts.

Our guest speaker is Dr. Francesca Scire-Scappuzzo, Sr. Director of Innovation & Advanced Technology at BAE Systems who will speak on “Understanding Today’s Ecosystem for Innovation.” Dr. Scire-Scappuzzo will discuss a new model for accelerating innovation in today’s dynamic business landscape that she’s developing at BAE systems. Her work is focused on leveraging the expertise at BAE to help connect emerging technology companies with investors, universities, and government entities to promote cross—cultural innovation and product development.

FAQs

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

Parking is available in the Riverside Parking Lot B: https://www.uml.edu/maps/#/parking/riverside-lots-a-and-b (entrance is off of Sparks Street). If entering Sparks Street from Riverside Street, bear right at the fork and take your first right onto the access road. About half way down the access road, on your right, is the entrance to the outdoor parking lot “Riverside B”. The gate will be open; park in any available spot. Please note, if you get to the entrance gate to the parking garage, you’ve gone too far.

The Core Research Facilities are located in the Emerging Technologies and Innovation Center (ETIC) at 40 University Avenue, a quick five minute walk from the parking lot. The most direct route is up Riverside Street, taking a left at University Avenue. Cross the street and ETIC will be up on your right.

How can I contact the organizer with any questions?
