The University of Massachusetts (UMass), a Council member, will host a series of Applied Science Zoom Summits in late January – early February 2021. Through these virtual programs, UMass aims to engage the business community in the broad range of research conducted by the university system that is relevant to innovation across many industries in throughout New England and beyond. The mission is to start a conversation about translational research they have underway on their five campuses and the “next frontiers” ripe for exploration in the academy and in industry.
Interested New England Council members are invited to participate in the following Applied Science Zoom Summits:
At these 90 minute summits, each held from 3:30-5:00 p.m., UMass scientists will explore the most advanced research underway in these fields with an emphasis on the problems they solve and the applications they have to industry. After a plenary session, the audience will be able to join break out sessions to discuss the “grand challenges” in each field that will occupy science and industry in next 5-10 years.
Please use the links above for more information on each session, and to register. The New England Council is grateful to UMass for extending the invitation to our members and encourage you to take advantage of the opportunity to participate in these important discussions.
