December 1 | World Affairs Council of New Hampshire | 2022 WACNH Global Business Summit
"Technology transfer supports all the pillars of the new global economy: innovation, technology, entrepreneurship and knowledge." This quote comes from the Association of University Technology Managers Foundation website, which is dedicated to supporting the critical work of creating university and industry partnerships to advance economic development and foster the technology transfer sector for the benefit of the global marketplace. In a world where technology drives all sectors, creating sustainable partnerships between researchers and innovators is critical.
While you may not have heard of the term technology transfer in the past, you have seen the end results impacting the everyday world we live in. Over 200 vaccines and drugs are the result of universities sharing critical research with business partners to further develop and commercialize research. From firefighting drones to artificial lungs, there are a wide range of amazing products and discoveries we have to thank technology transfer for.
Attendees of the Global Business Summit will come away with a better understanding of what technology transfer is, how it is driving global innovation, and the power it has to transform the world as we know it. In addition, you will have the opportunity to network with practitioners in the field to build connections and deepen understanding. Dr. Ashley Stevens, a leading voice in the field of Technology Transfer will provide critical insights into this important field, followed by an engaging discussion with local experts to further expand on the conversation.
Join us at Southern New Hampshire University on December 1st to gain a better understanding of this field that has created over 4 million jobs and more than $860 billion of GDP growth since 1996.

December 14 | WorldBoston | Great Decisions with Rachel Kyte | Climate Change
The ideological divide in the United States on the subject of climate change has impeded progress in curbing greenhouse emissions. But extreme weather events at both ends of the thermometer have focused attention on the consequences of inaction. What role will the United States play in future negotiations on climate?
Join us for a discussion of this complex topic with Rachel Kyte, Dean of The Fletcher School at Tufts University. The program will feature expert remarks from Dean Kyte, live audience Q&A, and time for networking and discussion with other globally-oriented participants.
This event is free and open to the public, but registration is required. This program will take place in-person at the Boston Public Library, and will be live-streamed to Zoom from 6:00 to 7:00 PM ET. Learn more and register here: https://www.worldboston.org/calendar/2022/12/14/climate-change
