The Innovation and Inventorship Science Cafe took place on Friday, September 29 at the Lyceum in downtown Hartford. Facilitated by Dr. Lakshmi Nair, a panel consisting of Dr. Greg Gallo, Dr. Mostafa Analouri, and Mr. Paul Parker discussed their roles in the process of innovation and invention at UConn, as well as the programs and services available in their offices. Over 60 faculty members, researchers, students, engineers, clinicians, and staff attended the event. Through engaging conversation and audience questions, the Science Cafe was well-received and generated positive feedback from attendees.
The event was made possible through the support of the CICATS faculty and staff, the Office of the Vice President for Research at UConn, and especially, The Kavli Foundation.
