Continuous Innovation
in Higher Education Forum
organised by UC San Diego

February 8th 2018, San Diego
UCSD Campus

A Round Table Dedicated to
Innovation Managers  in Universities

This event is designed specifically for innovation managers working in universities, those working on process innovation programs and projects, those who measure and assess performance and culture, and those that want to create positive change and impact at their college or university. 

We limit the number of participants, so that collaboration is high, and participants are able to share their success and failures, and ask questions in an intimate environment.
You will come away feeling energized, armed with insights, and deeper connections.
