Innovation to Impact
March 30 - April 3, 2020, Yale University West Campus
Twenty million people are struggling with substance use disorders and the yearly economic impact in the US is $193B. Innovations that could help substance users are not reaching the public fast enough. To address these challenges, Innovation to Impact at Yale was developed as a national program to provide education, mentorship and seed funding to innovators. The program is led by a team of top-tier educators and entrepreneurs with the overriding goal to advance ideas to IMPACT the world.
What: A five-day program at Yale's West Campus in Orange, CT, focused on teaching participants diverse skills through hands-on-learning activities with guidance from dynamic leaders. The program culminates in a Certificate in Entrepreneurship.
When: March 30 - April 3, 2020
Cost: Costs for air/train travel, hotel accommodations and most meals will be covered for applicants who are selected for this prestigious program.
Who: Curious and committed innovators who are interested in both exploring what it takes to bring a product to market and applying creative solutions to combat substance abuse through the use of pharmaceuticals, diagnostics, biomedical devices, app development, behavioral interventions, and/or public policy. Preference provided to researchers who have received NIDA funding.
Program applications will be available in early October 2019.
