Engineering Academic Environments to Foster Invention and Innovation

In partnership with CCNY, the Invention Ambassadors are hosting a special event on fostering invention and innovation.


Stephen Key, Mary Kombolias, Jason Grieves, Fang (Florence) Lu, Don McPhreson, Pratik Shah, Rachael Walker, Sabriya Stukes (moderator).


4:00 p.m.-4:15 p.m. – Introduction and Opening Remarks
4:15 p.m.-5:30 p.m. – Panel Discussion
5:30 p.m.-6:00 p.m. – Q&A with Audience and Panel Members

In our tech-saturated era, an abundance of scientific and engineering knowledge risks being left at the bench — knowledge that is imperative in improving the future of our health, environment, economies, and societies. Academic institutions can play a critical role. By training and educating highly skilled and motivated experts to translate their extensive knowledge into practical, real world solutions, they can create an environment for invention and innovation to flourish.

Please join The City College of New York Master’s in Translational Medicine in partnership with the AAAS-Lemelson Invention Ambassadors program as we discuss 1) the way academic institutions can promote opportunities for students and faculty to invent and develop entrepreneurial endeavors and 2) the ways invention itself can open doors for more people to become inventors.
