December 6-7, 2012

Le Meridien Hotel

Workshop Objectives

  • Define new opportunities for partnership across the participating sectors (academe, industry, government, nonprofit institutes, foundations, venture capital organizations, etc.) and across scientific disciplines to reach  the shared goal of significantly enhancing the development of approaches, new knowledge and products that positively impact society in the context of health and/or safety;
  • Develop a path towards efficient new models for interaction that synergize existing strengths of the respective parties, and provide resources to address potential obstacles or deficiencies, thereby ‘raising all boats’;
  • Create neutral but proactive platforms where opportunities to improve public health become a common objective of all stakeholders (e.g., industry, academia, government, foundations, etc.) rather than parallel, disconnected, or antagonistic activities.
  • Generate innovative ideas and recommendations that will be captured in a publication to follow the workshop.
