Selected Presentations

  • Solving World Challenges through Chemistry: Research, Entrepreneurship and Leadership
    J. Garcia-Martinez, University of Alicante, Spain
    Theres still a significant gap between academia and industry that needs to be bridged by bold entrepreneurs able to connect these two worlds and successfully commercialize new and exciting research carried out at universities.
    In order to get there, science education, from primary school to college, needs to be reinvented to put the student at the center of the learning process and provide him or her with the skills needed to become a more complete and creative scientist.
    During the presentation, some successful examples of the transition from university research to commercialization will be discussed including some practical tips and provocative ideas on how to go from challenge to solution through research, entrepreneurship and leadership so everybody will be able to benefit from better chemistry.
