Researchers and industry leaders from throughout the region will come together today for the third annual Bloomington Innovation Conference and Reception at Indiana University. Organizers say the event will spotlight "cutting-edge research" conducted on IU’s campus that has the potential to lead to commercial applications.
The keynote speaker will be University of Cincinnati Technology Commercialization Accelerator Entrepreneur-in-Residence Nick Nikolaides. He also serves as engagement manager at the university’s Skin Science and Technology Center.
Johnson Center for Innovation and Translational Research Director Keith Davis says the conference will allow researchers to receive feedback from industry and community partners. He says those partners will also "have the opportunity to learn more about new and continuing innovation in the IU Bloomington research community."
The conference runs Thursday from 9:00 a.m.-6:00 p.m. at the Indiana Memorial Union, Biddle Hotel and Conference Center. You can find more information by clicking here.
