Retail supply chains are being transformed to adopt customer-centric and demand-driven strategies and focus on future capabilities that adapt to the very dynamic environment. This session will discuss the different opportunities behind these transformations in the retail distribution. Particularly we will focus on (1) collaborating with a variety of stakeholders along scalable an smart digital platforms when distributing their products to the ever changing customers and (2) Implementing omnichannel distribution strategies, discussing the main challenges in omnichannel and how the growth of ecommerce is impacting the supply chains.
This fall, MIT’s Industrial Liaison Program (ILP) and Energy Initiative (MITEI) will continue the energy innovation webinar series focused on the energy transition. The series will further engage leading researchers from across MIT and industry executives on topics including power markets, low-carbon fuels, decarbonization of buildings and industry, and other sectors. Industrial collaboration has long been a hallmark of MIT’s approach to problem solving. Please join us to hear what we are doing together with our industrial partners to address the climate change challenges.
Financial services industry has been going through rapid changes in recent years and new technology development has played a pivotal role in the process. The current pandemic has further accelerated the pace of technology innovation and adoption, and at the same time presented new challenges as well as opportunities. Please join MIT thought leaders and startups for a series of discussions on the new trends in financial services and the driving forces behind them, including FinTech, BigTech, AI, and other disruptive technologies that will transform and reshape the future of the entire sector.
Many world regions face increasing pressures from global and regional changes in climate, population growth, urban-area expansion, and the socio-economic impacts of fossil-based development. Human interference in the global climate system contributes significantly to changes in regional and local extreme weather and climate patterns. This webinar focuses on “physical risks” that are related to damage from climate events such as floods, droughts, wind and extreme temperatures, as well as “transition risks” that arise from shifts in the political, technological, social and economic landscape that are likely to occur during the transition to a low-carbon economy.
Mobility and transportation are at the dawn of the most profound changes with an unprecedented combination of new technologies (autonomy, computation, and AI) meeting new and evolving priorities and objectives (decarbonization, public health, and social justice). And the timeframe for these changes – decarbonization in particular – is short in a system with massive amounts of fixed, long-life assets and entrenched behaviors and cultures. It’s this combination of new technologies, new purposes, and urgent timeframes that makes an MIT-led Mobility Initiative critical at this moment.
The MIT Mobility Initiative (MMI) is designed to effect fundamental changes in the longterm trajectory of sustainable mobility development. It serves to coalesce all mobility and transportation activities at MIT, knitting together our efforts on research, education, entrepreneurship, and civic engagement at the Institute into a greater whole. This series of webinars will highlight just a few of the key research areas to be explored. We will also discuss how industry can participate in the MMI as a research partner through the MIT Mobility Initiative Consortium.
Tailings – what’s left after mined ores are fully processed – is today a global liability. But there are tens of billions of dollars of material value tied up in those tailings. Why not turn them into a revenue opportunity? MIT researchers, and newly spun-out startup companies, are hard at work on inventing, developing, and scaling up technologies that will enable this transition. Join us on November 18th to learn more about this impactful work!
Join the MIT Industrial Liaison Program (ILP) this fall for our second digital transformation webinar series. In this series, we will continue to explore key digital transformation topics of corporate interest, including digital strategies, operational agility, customer experience, and new technologies.
The digital future is here, and the threat of disruption looms large. The COVID-19 crisis has contributed to this disruption and notably accelerated the transition to a digital future. In our current rapidly expanding digital marketplace, what does digital transformation mean for your company and your business model? How can you stay on top, and even ahead, of these rapid changes? What challenges will your company face, and how can you prepare to successfully tackle what’s ahead? Please join MIT ILP alongside MIT faculty [and startups] to discuss and address these key issues in facing our digital future.
Join the MIT Industrial Liaison Program for a four-part webinar series on Manufacturing 4.0, presenting the latest research and technology in advanced manufacturing at MIT. Each session includes a talk and Q&A with expert faculty in the field, startup presentations from founders affecting industry, and panel discussions.

State-of-the-art information and communication technologies have become absolutely essential for all industries as the world is becoming more and more interconnected and data-driven. This trend has been further accelerated by the COVID pandemic. Where is the digital frontier today and what lies ahead? The annual MIT Information & Communication Technologies (ICT) event explores the latest research from across the Institute and its potential impact across industries. The webinar series will feature three sessions by six MIT faculty on the following topics: wireless communications, low power/edge computing and urban infrastructure. Additionally, a fourth session will feature MIT-connected startups presenting on the same topics.
