Event: University Research & Technology Roundtable – Water/Wastewater (June 14/15)

Spotlighting Breakthrough Innovations Around the Great Lakes Region

Join Mazarine for our annual round-table, conducted in 2 sessions, focused on research and technology development being undertaken at universities around the Great Lakes region.

While we all have heard the statistic that the Great Lakes contain over 20% of the world’s freshwater resources, what is less known is the region’s impactful contribution to addressing the world’s climate and environmental challenges. Universities and federal institutions in the region are conducting a wide variety of research and technology development projects that tackle water/wastewater challenges in agriculture, conservation, buildings, industry, and utilities.

Each day’s 90-minute program will offer 8 invited universities 15-minutes each to introduce their water/wastewater-related research and technology development activities. The last 30-minutes each day will be reserved for discussion and audience questions around where and how university innovation can more expeditiously move from university lab to market trials. Can venture capital and corporates play a role?

Highlighted research and technology development will span biomimicry, chemistry, computer engineering, data science, materials science, microbiology, and advances in process engineering. This program’s attendees will include a mix of academia, corporates, investors, government, non- profit, engineering firms, and industry consultants.
