Bridging the Gap from Lab to Fab

The Holy Grail of fundamental research is often how to go beyond “incrementalism” and take a brilliant idea from lab to fab (the “valley of death”) and make money too…This half-day session will seek to answer this challenge and answer more questions... Where are the gaps in taking an innovative, disruptive technology application of MEMS and bring it to market? This program will seek to answer these questions by presenting the various models that support MEMS commercialization, including how to leverage a well-conceived and well operated I/U consortium with the potential to reap huge dividends.
