2015 Innovation Showcase

Highlighting Science and Engineering at OSU and UO

Wednesday, April 15 from 8:30am-12:00pm


Innovations are R&D results that are effectively translated to practical use as solutions to market needs. Deep understanding of market needs, combined with technical sense, can unleash an innovator’s imagination. Oregon’s economy grows with the success of scientists and engineers, as they produce transformational products and services that meet market requirements.  Please join us for the Innovation Showcase where we will share how basic scientific and engineering research is being informed and influenced by a market lens; how this approach results in excellence both in science and commercialization; how successful industry-standard approaches to market validation are being incorporated into the educational process to train the innovator; and how you can participate in a thriving innovation ecosystem.
