Fostering Cross-Institutional Innovation
On June 6th 2013, Tufts Tech Transfer, in conjunction with Office of the Vice Provost and the School of Dental Medicine, hosted a gathering on the Boston campus to foster cross-institutional collaboration in dental research and innovation. Over 40 attendees of the Collaboration Sandbox, including dentists, microbiologists, engineers, veterinarians, and chemists were divided into five groups for discussions directed at selected dental challenges. Expected positive outcomes include additional research collaboration and joint invention disclosures to Tufts Tech Transfer. The keynote speaker was Gerard Moufflet, CEO and Founder, Acceleration International.
