This program offers a fresh approach—a doer's approach—to innovating. Aspiring innovators will explore how to turn their “hunches” into tangible, real-world problems by learning to envision the organizations that can solve them. You will discover the advantages of converting challenges into opportunities and acquire the necessary tools and techniques to work with parts and people to move forward in your innovating.
Sustainability in the face of increasingly severe climate change: What, practically speaking, does that mean for the corporate world? For manufacturing, chemical, materials and process companies, it means transforming to low-emissions methods and technologies – and exploiting the growth of renewable energy to power this transformation. For other corporate enterprises it also means adaptation – leveraging computation and communications technologies for better forecasting, resilience and risk mitigation.
Day 1 of this event will showcase bold, innovative faculty, impactful MIT research programs and disruptive startups all working to decarbonize industrial processes and improve resilience. Building on this, Day 2 will feature a morning of workshops to engage more deeply with several leading MIT centers who are dedicated to solving industrial sustainability challenges in water, emissions and materials.
The annual MIT Digital Technology and Strategy Conference explores the latest research from across the Institute and its potential impact across industries. The conference highlights MIT's cutting-edge research in areas such as digital platforms, data monetization, quantum computing, digital materials, wireless and satellite communications, human-computer interactions, ML and data science in process automation, formal models for design reuse decisions, digital innovation, and more.
Long before the current pandemic, MIT has fostered a culture which believes that innovation is about change, and that change is about resiliency. Enduring and recovering from difficult technical, environmental, and personal challenges depends on how quickly we can innovate a solution around them. New technologies which succeed are those which can adapt to different settings, promise widespread application, and most importantly, stay flexible in a constantly changing business environment.
Please join us at our annual MIT Research and Development Conference on November 15-16, 2022. Meet MIT researchers, MIT Startup Exchange entrepreneurs, and global business leaders working in a spectrum of the various fields.
