Created in consultation with neuroscientists, “The Brain Piece” deals with themes like memory, illusion and sensory perception […] Ms. Oberfelder and her dancers translated neurogenesis into movement, mimicking the replicating and differentiating cells.

Science,Business and Entrepreneurship

 

Our technology-driven world requires a new type of professional. To remain competitive, the business person of the 21st century needs to understand the technologies that underpin modern enterprise and speak the language of science-based products and science-based businesses.

Also, a new generation of scientists for today’s increasingly competitive and business-aware world is being created. Business is demanding a dynamic, out-of-the-box thinkers who want to make their mark in both their scientific and business pursuits; problem solvers who see opportunities where others see obstacles and have the vision to create state-of-the-art solutions; dreamers and doers who aren't afraid to ask questions, aren't satisfied with the status quo, and stop at nothing to make meaningful change.

Join us to discuss the challenges and the amazing opportunities that business and science face.
