The Conversation, designed for senior level academic professionals and industry leadership, will be strategic and forward looking. The agenda includes timely discussions about holistic academia-industry engagements and current innovation initiatives, with a strict no-PowerPoints-allowed structure that engages attendees in meaningful discussion – and potentially debate - with each and every panel of experts as well as the audience. You will have an opportunity to explore current topics, including the expanded roles of tech transfer, IP and national security concerns, the changing face of metrics, data licensing, hiring, and the hybrid work environment.

Join your colleagues for this in-person event to catch up, share practices, and build new avenues for your work, whether in academia or industry.
