Transforming laboratory research into commercial products and services is vital to New York's future economic growth. Human capital is integral to this commercialization process and includes not only scientists and engineers, but also other professionals, such as business managers, marketing specialists, financial analysts, and intellectual property and corporate transaction attorneys. This conference will examine unique programs in New York State universities which are building the professional infrastructure needed to support NY’s innovation economy, examine the needs of companies commercializing new technology and explore potential future public partnerships to accelerate human capital development.
