The Innovation Catalyst Seminar returns after a holiday break with this month's seminar which will focus on UNH's student population and our two most popular programs—the Undergraduate Research Conference (URC) and the Holloway Prize Innovation-to-Market Competition. In its 13th year, the URC is one of the largest undergraduate research conferences in the country, with over 1,000 students across all disciplines participating. The Holloway Prize (even older in its 24th year) provides tens of thousands of dollars in cash and services to the winners. Please come to learn more about these opportunities, what happens at the end of each event, and how each program might give you the first glance at the "next big thing" to come out of UNH.
The seminar will be followed by cocktails and networking from 5:00-7:00pm at Ballard's in downtown Durham courtesy of seminar sponsors Devine Millimet, Pierce Atwood, Ropes & Gray, and Salient Surgical Technologies.
The Innovation Catalyst Seminar Series, hosted monthly, discusses relevant issues related to commercializing UNH’s innovations, including current and emerging best practices on campus.
The seminars are open to all and designed to be a meeting place for innovators, entrepreneurs, service providers, and anyone else interested in how the university innovations of today represent the information and opportunities of tomorrow.
