Even world leading universities, which excel in invention, often struggle with innovation. In particular, scientific inventions of a radical, generic nature, with high potential economic and social value, can languish in the lab because of prolonged uncertainty and high commercialization costs. Drawing on her research in the advanced materials, nanotech, biotech, and clean tech sectors, Professor Maine will offer commercialization strategies for scientist-entrepreneurs. Dr. Lubik will offer university-level strategies, including innovative accelerator and educational programs to support a more effective innovation ecosystem. Participants are encouraged to discuss the innovative programs at their our universities/companies, and to categorize their aims and approaches.
