Innovation Forum is an annual competition and networking event showcasing Princeton research with potential for commercialization, cultural or societal impact.
Dec 13, 2022, 1:00 pm – 6:00 pm


Event Description

Highlighting advancements in the fields of science and engineering as well as social sciences and the humanities, the forum is a unique program that supports both commercial and societal advancements.

Princeton faculty, post-doctoral researchers, and graduate students are invited to present their innovations in a three-minute pitch style presentation to a panel of judges who are industry experts, seasoned entrepreneurs, and esteemed leaders in both engineering and humanities fields. The forum is divided into two distinct tracks: Science and Engineering and Social Sciences and Humanities. Prize money is awarded to the top three entries in each track. 

The pitches are followed by a networking reception where participants can further discuss and demonstrate their research to audience members.
