Rebuilding Our Innovation Infrastructure for the 21st Century

The 20th century U.S. research enterprise, shaped by titan corporate research labs and wartime industrial policy, gave birth to a technology revolution that now fuels our modern society and economy. But the world has changed. We have witnessed a disappearance of the large-scale corporate R&D model, alongside a powerful rise in academic research and venture-capital driven innovation. In many ways, today’s research environment is more vibrant than ever. But a critical rift has emerged between research and application, leaving today's top science innovators homeless and endangered. Our capacity for scientific discovery and invention is stronger than ever, but our innovation infrastructure is in need of an upgrade. Most critically, we must re-invest in cultivating talent and institutions aimed at translating science into practical application. Cyclotron Road is creating a new institutional home for the next generation of science innovators that can address society's most pressing problems.

Please join GUIRR for a webinar with Ilan Gur, Founding Director of Cyclotron Road, to discuss how the organization empowers innovators to address 21st century research and technology challenges.
