IEEE-USA IWRC is bringing the CHIPS Act to South Dakota!

#professional #resources #chips #education #region

Innovation takes more than ideas — it takes partnerships. Small business owners, government officials, academic researchers, financers, and others need to work together for our local innovation ecosystem to thrive, but it is rare for those people to be all in one place — until now.

The 2024 IEEE-USA Innovation, Workforce, and Research Conference (IWRC) consists of an evening reception followed by a day-long workshop, bringing together stakeholders from academia, government, and industry to bridge the gap between research and commercially viable products. Experts from our region and across the country will discuss research grants, technology transfer programs, start-up funding, intellectual property and a host of other topics related to inspiring and empowering true innovation in the Heartland Region.

But most importantly we will bring together the key innovators from the key parts of our local innovation economy in one place to meet, learn, talk, and plan as the CHIPS Act comes to our corner of America.
