How can Georgia's chemical industries leverage the state's superb academic technological resources? And how can academia benefit from the enrichment brought by the commercial application of their research?
We are planning an interactive learning day, with a mixture of hands-on deal-making workshops, interactive talks, and discussions designed to illuminate the perspectives of each partner, where and how to identify collaborators, and always great networking.
