Stony Brook University’s Economic Development is planning to host a Technology Commercialization Conference on Thursday, March 12, 2020 at 9:00am to 12:30pm at CEWIT. The conference will showcase potentially commercializable technologies created by faculty, staff and graduate students in academic departments and other organizations at Stony Brook University. The audience will include potential investors and investor groups from Long Island and the greater New York metropolitan area, companies that are potential licensees or strategic partners, and individuals with experience or a strong interest in innovation at Stony Brook. The conference will focus primarily on information technology, biotech and healthcare, and the energy sector; but no credible innovation will be overlooked.

If you would like to present your latest technological innovation at the conference for potential commercialization, you will need to submit the following:

     Abstract of one page or less describing your innovation

     The problem/need that it addresses

     The nature and scope of the business opportunity, including potential customers

     The competition (current solutions to the problem and their deficiencies)
