ICRA 2015 Industry Forum, Wednesday, May 27, 9 - 5pm

The industry forum brings together academic, industry and government 
participants to discuss topics at the intersection of academia and 
industry, with the aim of strengthening ties, building networks, and 
fostering entrepreneurship in robotics and automation.

This year's edition of the industry forum will include sessions on Tech 
Transfer from Academia to Industry and Transitioning from Academia to 
Industry. The forum will feature talks by leading academic researchers 
who have successfully transferred their research into commercial 
products or spinoff companies, as well as leading industry roboticists 
sharing their insights on transitioning from academia to industry. Both 
sessions will include a panel discussion to discuss successful paths to 
tech transfer and academia-industry collaboration, and the diversity of 
career paths in robotics, including transitions between academia and 

The forum will also feature the award ceremony of the IEEE/IFR Invention 
& Entrepreneurship Award for Outstanding Achievements in Commercializing 
Innovative Robot and Automation Technology (IERA Award).

The detailed program schedule can be found here:


We invite industry and academic participants interested in 
collaboration, networking and industrial career paths in robotics to 
attend the forum. Ample time for informal discussion with the speakers 
will be allocated through a lunch and reception offered to the participants.

We look forward to seeing you at the Industrial Forum in Seattle and to 
an exciting event and discussion!
