The Global Engineering Innovation Symposium, March 23
Engineers Without Borders Toronto Presents: The Global Engineering Innovation Symposium
Saturday, March 23rd, 2013
Victoria College, University of Toronto
The Global Engineering Innovation Symposium is a special day for students, young professionals, and industry experts to showcase their innovative solutions to complex issues in our public transportation sector. With an illustrious host of expert speakers including keynote speaker Paul Bedford (former Chief City Planner of the City of Toronto) we will discuss Canada’s innovative potential and some of our biggest innovation challenges.
The Symposium will showcase the Global Engineering Innovation Challenge finalist teams and their problem solutions, and provide a forum for attendees to share ideas about the issues at hand and learn more about innovation in Canada. All Symposium participants will be asked for their feedback on the Challenge solutions that are presented, so come ready to help innovate. We also know that innovation in Canada presents complex challenges and immense opportunity, so we are bringing industry leaders to guide our smaller seminar sessions. They will explore tough questions about innovation- from the resources we need to support it, to the policies that lead to commercialization and uptake. Participants can ask questions, put forth new ideas, and learn from their neighbours and peers. The afternoon will conclude with a networking reception to reflect on the day- the ideas, the approaches, and the opportunities for you to create innovative change.
Innovation is amplified in networks, so come be part of ours!
