NEC to Launch “New England Innovates” Event Series
New Event Series to Highlight Region’s Innovation Economy
The New England region is home to a thriving innovation economy, with cutting edge products, services, and technologies being developed across a range of industries. In order to promote an ongoing dialogue in the region about how we maintain our reputation as a global innovation hub, The New England Council will launch a new event series this fall called “New England Innovates.” The Council plans to hold “New England Innovates” forums periodically throughout the year, each focusing on a specific sector or issue affecting innovation in the region. These forums will highlight the role that New England Council members are playing to drive innovation across various sectors of the economy. Each event will focus on exploring challenges and opportunities for continued growth, and will examine how policy makers at the local, state, and federal level can support innovation in New England.
The first “New England Innovates” forum will focus on innovation in the healthcare sector, and specifically, how new technologies and advances in medicine are changing the way healthcare is delivered and patients are treated. The event will take place on Tuesday, October 11, from 8:00 – 10:00 a.m. at Massachusetts General Hospital’s Paul S. Russell, MD Museum of Medical History and Innovation in Boston. The forum will feature a a panel of NEC members in the healthcare sector who will highlight their innovations and discuss challenges and opportunities for continued healthcare innovation in New England.
Stay tuned for an invitation to the October 11 inaugural “New England Innovates” forum in the coming weeks. If you have any questions, please contact Emily Heisig or David O’Donnell.
