Innovations Inventors Forum: How Do I Invent?

Cleveland Clinic Innovations is celebrating May as National Inventors Month. Join us as we honor all active and aspiring inventors by hosting an Inventors Forum on what it takes to innovate in the new era of healthcare.

The Innovations Inventors Forum is designed to give caregivers an in-depth look at the commercialization approach through educational presentations, discussion panels, and "real life" scenarios. How Do I Invent? will provide attendees an overview of:

  • How Cleveland Clinic Innovations operates;
  • What it takes to move an idea from concept to market; and
  • What Innovations is doing to adapt to the new era of healthcare.
     
Seasoned inventors will also discuss the key questions and issues regarding inventorship, including:
  • The drive to invent;
  • Costs and rewards of inventing; and 
  • Real-time advice for colleagues looking to commercialize a breakthrough idea.

The session is free and open to Cleveland Clinic caregivers only. Light reception to follow.
