Raising Awareness, Promoting Collaboration and Sparking Conversations

 

At Innovation Park, we believe that new innovative ideas come from collaborating with others.  Three times a year, we host our TechTopics event, which brings together members of our community to learn about Innovation Park, its residents, and the research being conducted in the Park, as well as the Big Bend Region.  We believe that showcasing and sparking conversations about these subjects can foster new ideas, while also making the community aware of the world-class research, facilities, technology, resources, commercialization and entrepreneurship taking place in the park.

All of our TechTopics events take place at one of our facilities in Innovation Park.  The event begins at 11:30am. Over the past few events, our audience has grown, so we suggest getting there right at 11:30am to get a good seat.

Our TechTopics events are FREE and open to the public. Registration for the event is required to attend and is open one month prior to the event.

Lunch is provided complimentary to all of our attendees.
