Please note the attached announcement for the first Louisiana Industry ¬Academia Collaborative Workshop. Louisiana EPSCoR and the Board of Regents plan to host a series of these workshops with this first one focused on Materials and Energy. The purpose of the workshop is to foster interactions between some of Louisiana’s leading researchers and representatives of Louisiana’s industrial R&D community. We also hope to identify and begin to address policies and mechanisms that may advance fruitful synergisms between academia and industry.

The first workshop is scheduled for October 15, 2010, from noon to 5:30 PM with a reception following in the Marriott in Baton Rouge, LA. The Materials and Energy workshop will feature speakers from industry and academia. Industry representatives will provide insights into their research needs and challenges and university intellectual property officers will describe research innovations that could be particularly relevant to Louisiana's business and industry. University researchers will have posters that describe some of their research programs and related innovations. Lunch will be provided. Seating is limited. Registration required (deadline: October 8, 2010). Please see attached registration form.

This message has been distributed to all faculty.
