Description

Join Us for an Evening of Innovation!

The OSU Advantage Innovation Showcase is a celebration of technology and entrepreneurship. Researchers, industry and startups come together at this event to showcase the forefront of innovation.

This November 8th, hear from OSU researchers developing game-changing technologies, OSU spinouts and institutes driving the future of nuclear energy, and emerging startups from the OSU Advantage Accelerator programs!


Schedule of Events

Commercialization paths of platform technologies - 5 p.m.

Imagine never painting your house or staining your deck again. Imagine a solar cell made without silicon. Now imagine that the materials used for both applications come from the same natural and sustainable materials. Two OSU researchers, Sarath Vega Gutierrez and Oksana Ostroverkhova, discuss their research with fungal pigments as a product platform, focusing on the different applications and the potential paths for commercialization.

The Impact of Small Modular Reactors (SMRs) – 5:45 p.m.

The nuclear energy industry is rapidly changing. New generation technologies have the potential to be a highly efficient energy source while also providing significantly improved safety conditions. NuScale Power is commercializing OSU technology and has received hundreds of millions in investment. The Rapid Advancement of Process Intensification Deployment (RAPID) Institute focuses on breakthrough technologies to dramatically improve the energy efficiency of novel manufacturing processes. In this panel, industry leaders discuss the future of nuclear energy with the advent of SMRs.

Speakers:

  • Kent Welter – Engineering Chief, Testing and Analysis at NuScale Power
  • Brian Paul - Modular Manufacturing Focus Area Leader at the RAPID Institute


Startups - 6:30 p.m.

High-energy emerging startups from the OSU Advantage Accelerator programs pitch in search of investment and strategic partners.

After the event, join us at a hosted reception to network with the presenters and other professionals from the ecosystem!
