The Keys of Innovation: Technology Transfer from University to Industry by the California-Spain Chamber of Commerce

06/03/2015 @ 6:30 PM - 9:00 PM


If you want to know more about the interaction and knowledge exchange between Science and Business, don’t miss this opportunity to mingle with the Bay Area community of Scientists and learn from our incredible Panel Discussion!

When: Wednesday, June 3rd. From 6:30pm to 9:00pm (PDT)
Where: Li Ka Shing Center, Stanford University, Room LK130. 291 Campus Drive, Palo Alto, CA 94305.

Although Science and Business have defined boundaries, neither discipline can thrive without the other. Innovation and technological improvements undergo scientific experiments and studies before the final products are presented to the targer market. Many scientific developments eventually become commercial products.

Science and Business communities are different players, interacting successfully in the Silicon Valley Ecosystem. We are inviting scientists of all diverse areas to join and share their experiences with our strong network of entrepreneurs, business and venture capital.

This event is complimentary!

When: Wednesday, June 3rd. From 6:30pm to 9:00pm (PDT)
