Boston, MA.  Northeastern University’s Center for Research Innovation (CRI) has announced its participation in AdvaMed 2012 as part of its continued commitment to serving Northeastern University’s innovation community.

With inventions surfacing at a record pace, Northeastern ‘s reputation as a source for relevant innovations is continuing to grow.  CRI leads the translation of University innovations to high impact solutions by leveraging entrepreneurship and commercialization strategies.  Participation in AdvaMed 2012 (over 1900 participants) will create additional opportunities in the Medtech vertical while continuing to increase the visibility of Northeastern University’s commitment to high impact innovation.  Highlights of the convention include meetings with C-suite individuals of significant companies representing the Medtech Industry, participation with other highly regarded entities in the Massachusetts Pavilion, and the ability to gain insight into the most up-to-date technological advances in the medical field.

CRI recently attended BIO 2012 (over 15,000 participants) with a similar mission of continuing to develop corporate relationships across the Bio-tech and Pharmaceutical Industries.  These meetings produced significant relationships that, with the help of CRI, are fostering collaborations between NU innovators and big name corporations, helping to bring NU innovations to the marketplace.
