Changing Directions & Changing the World: Celebrating the Carver Mead New Adventures Fund

Friday, June 7, 2019
1:00pm to 5:30pm
Add to Cal

Please join us for a Symposium celebrating the impact of the Carver Mead New Adventures Fund. The afternoon features technical talks from Carver Mead New Adventures Fund recipients, alumni, and Carver Mead himself! Since 2014, this Fund has championed exceptional projects in their earliest stage of development – too early to attract industry or government support. This characteristic embodies Carver's approaches and practices, with a continued goal to expand Carver's daring approach to research and innovation throughout the Caltech campus. We look forward to highlighting some of the adventurous research that has been explored by grants made possible by this initiative with you.
