Clarkson University Offers Alumni Reunion College on Innovation

Clarkson University has opened this summer's Alumni College to the public.

On July 14 and 15, the University's Shipley Center for Innovation and the Office of Alumni Relations will present the two-day seminar "Innovation = Ideas + Execution."

The Alumni College, conducted each year during the annual Alumni Reunion, presents cutting-edge Clarkson research and development, which addresses contemporary issues that have an impact on the participants' life and community.

This year, participants will discuss with experienced innovators the innovation process from the "aha" moment through to commercialization.

The seminar will provide an opportunity to exchange ideas, as well as learn about specific concepts to "de-risk" innovation, refine the innovation process to capture efficiencies, and build a support infrastructure.

In addition, the seminar will introduce participants to the Clarkson Model for the Commercialization of Emerging Technologies, which highlights value-adding services and resources.

The cost of the one-and-a-half-day seminar is $200, which includes meals and materials. Overnight accommodations are available on campus for $55 (double occupancy).

Register and read more about the seminar at http://clarkson.edu/alumni/alumni_college.html . The deadline for registration is June 30.
