Next month in São Paulo, MIT will encourage Brazilian innovators to think outside of the box with Challenge of Innovation 2013. The two-day conference, set to be held on May 7th and 8th, will bring together top Brazilian and multinational executives, public sector leaders and entrepreneurs to focus on technology innovation and competitiveness in Brazil.
Put together by the Industrial Liaison Program of MIT (ILP-MIT) along with the CERTI Foundation and SENAI, the annual event, which took place for the first time in 2012, is the culmination of Brazil’s sustained growth in technology, industry and innovation.
Challenge of Innovation 2013 will feature 11 sessions on four main themes: Life Science, Energy, Material Science and Digital Business. Each session will be presented by a keynote speaker from MIT, who will present his or her own ideas about the issue at hand and spur debate among audience members and panelists.
The conference will be held at Hotel Bourbon in São Paulo, and registration to attend will be open until May 5th. Find more information on Challenge of Innovation 2013 and reserve a spot here.
