UO Innovation Summit

Friday, October 27, 2017 at 9:00am to 11:00pm

Celebrating innovation and entrepreneurship at the University of Oregon and beyond

Join us as for an interdisciplinary festival as we highlight innovation among our students, faculty, and alumni, as well as in the wider Eugene community. The UO Innovation Summit will connect participants to ideas, resources, and one another to advance entrepreneurial knowledge, opportunities, and shared pursuits.

The summit is an organized set of activities that will include speaker presentations, interactive exhibits, skill-building workshops, pitch competitions, hackathons, performances, film showings and art exhibitions all under the theme of "innovation." Activities will highlight the latest trends and thought-leadership across a range of disciplines, including science, technology, media, social justice, global issues, arts and literature, sports, music, environment, gender and sexuality, and business.

We invite all members of the UO and Eugene/Springfield communities to submit creative and compelling proposals.

To support the inaugural University of Oregon Innovation Summit, President Michael H. Schill is encouraging the campus and greater Eugene/Springfield community to participate in the university’s Innovation week, October 24 – 29. President Schill has declared Friday, October 27 “UO Innovators' Day.”

The University of Oregon and its Lundquist College of Business would like to thank Grant and Suanne Inman for their leadership gift to support the Innovation Summit. We would also like to thank Bob and Mary Ann Rode for their support of this interdisciplinary effort.
