Innovation Forum is an annual competition and networking event showcasing Princeton research with the potential to be commercialized. Each participant will present a short pitch followed by Q&A from a feedback panel. Audience members will have the opportunity to interact with the presenters through on-screen demo stations.
Since 2005, this event has showcased innovations in engineering and the natural sciences in conjunction with the Office of Technology Licensing. This year, the Keller Center and the Humanities Council at Princeton are adding a track focused on innovations in the humanities and social sciences.
Requests for accommodations can be made when you register to attend. Please provide at least 7 days advance notice.
