Roundtable for Researchers

July 19, 2017
Westchester County Association
1133 Westchester Ave, White Plains, NY 10604

The WBP is an initiative to bring together researchers, engineers, and data scientists across the region of Westchester County, NY. Activities include breakfast meetings, roundtables, webinars, and the Innovation in Research Symposium. 

Over the next few months we will be reaching out to bring together small Roundtable discussions as we develop new programs that reflect the vibrant opportunities and significant challenges for life science research, engineering, and data science. This is the perfect moment to prepare for a lively summer of activities to stimulate knowledge sharing and collaboration across the many silos of biomedical research, device development, and more.

At this Kick-Off we will share our vision and ask for your viewpoint. Already we have interviewed a number of stakeholders across the region, and at this by-invitation meeting we will share insights collected and ask for your perspectives.
