The Conversation: A Leadership Forum

Join the Conversation


September 27 - 28
Andaz Hotel
San Diego, California

Join The Conversation, a leadership forum of high level technology transfer, corporate relations, investor/VC and industry professionals in San Diego, California, to connect and discuss the ways in which we can leverage our leadership roles to stimulate interactions that drive broad collaborative initiatives, including accelerating commercialization and improving innovation.

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. You will have an opportunity to explore current topics, including foundation and investor interactions, how IP affects us all, multi-institutional initiatives with industry, the expectations of our scientists and our bosses, and the entrepreneurial edge of the ecosystem.
