Careers & Advancement

MRS Innovation ConneXions

The scientific process is no longer just about generating ideas, but about sharing those ideas with broader audiences. To that end, MRS Innovation ConneXions is a collection of programs and resources to help connect people and ideas… providing access to innovation-related expertise… and initiating the process of interaction and collaboration. 

Now more than ever, the ability to recruit students, attract collaborators, secure funding or compete successfully in the global environment is tied to the ability to successfully bring research out of the laboratory and to accelerated commercialization. The events, resources and opportunities presented here cut across disciplines and engage industry, government, academic and  investment sectors—all in an effort to cultivate and champion the growth of entrepreneurial and start-up ventures.
