The Research to Real World Commercialization Training Series is a great way to learn how to bring ideas to life (and do some professional development to include in your peer review file).

Join the Office of Innovation and Economic Development for a workshop on idea validation. Learn about the common roadblocks to the success of your innovation and how to overcome them. Find out about resources for you and your students to test your assumptions, improve your ideas, and make them real.
