Advancing Innovation, Entrepreneurship, and Economic Development
From the Presidents-Investors Summit held in January 2012, the organizers of this series have put together several topics that have stemmed from the discussions from the event, and that build upon the letter to the U.S. Secretary of Commerce from the National Advisory Council on Innovation and Entrepreneurship (NACIE) and over 130 university presidents: Recommendations to Facilitate University-Based Technology Commercialization. [click here to download the NACIE letter].This webinar series will highlight and showcase specific initiatives and programs that universities are doing in response to the NACIE letter and provides a venue for other universities to learn from their peers on strategies that will advance their own programs towards research commercialization.
