Holyoke Clean Energy Innovation Workshop - November 9-10, 2011.
With an innovative municipally-owned utility (HG&E), on-the-horizon innovative clean energy technologies, a talented workforce, a blossoming entrepreneur environment, broad academic research and education capabilities, and an engaged public and private sector - Holyoke and the Connecticut River Valley region are well-poised to help create, deploy, and leverage the next generation of clean energy system technologies. A unique possibility for the region is that of developing and deploying these technologies in a Holyoke testbed setting. Key to success, however, will be collaboration among engineers, entrepreneurs, policy makers, researchers and educators with the ability to learn from, and leverage, everyone’s expertise.
The goal of the “Holyoke Clean Energy Innovation Workshop” is to begin developing such collaborations by learning about each other's expertise and identifying opportunities for collaboration in entrepreneurial activities, federal-funding partnerships, and research and educational activities.
Innovation Challenge at UMass Amherst - The Innovation Challenge (IC) promotes innovation education based on technology conceived by faculty, students and alumni of UMass Amherst. The competition is limited to technology-based businesses, and is meant to encourage science and engineering students, in cooperation with management students, to think of commercial applications of their work. The goal is for interdisciplinary teams to conceptualize a product with regard to its scientific and technological design, and then create a business plan for the product's commercialization. Judges of the competition are entrepreneurs, legal experts, and consultants who volunteer their time to meet with students who are interested in marketing their new ideas.
