PRE-CONFERENCE INTENSIVE SESSION (separate registration fee)
INTRODUCTION: CREATING COMMUNITIES OF INNOVATION (COI) 101
Chair: Erin Koshut, Executive Director, Cummings Research Park

Welcome to “COI Launch Point”!
We’ve embraced your feedback that our daylong COI 101 program is too much information for one-setting. Just as the world has pivoted, so has AURP. Beginning 2022, the COI 101 will be offered up online, in digestible modules that individuals can participate in, on their own schedule.
At the IC2022 in Toronto, Canada, we will unite participates for a Meet the Leader segment to address burning issues, revisit trends and further deep dive into modules. 
This abbreviated COI 101 session will serve as your launch point of discovery and offer up an overview of what you need to know, considerations for your research park or innovation district.

1:30 - 4:00 PM OPTIONAL DISCOVER TOURS (no additional fee)
Coming in early for the conference? Set aside time for discovery at these optional tours to get ahead of the curve in this year's knowledge-exchange.
