Productive Liaisons — Bringing Together Industry and Academia
The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) is the home of not just great research but, also, of great industry/university collaborations. That’s not happenstance. It is the result of efforts of a team of industrialists-turned-academics, like Randall Wright, who combine years of industry experience with encyclopedic knowledge of university research activities to build partnerships for commercialization of innovative products. Join us in a discussion with Randall, program director of the MIT Industrial Liaison Program, and learn his unique view of creativity and innovation in business and research – and, of course, how failure plays into both.
