Summit on the National Agenda for Innovation
July 16 - 17, 2006

Union League Club
65 West Jackson
Chicago, Illinois

In this 20th year of The Microelectronics Foundation, we are reinventing and re-engineering the entire foundation, as spearheaded by visionaries and industry thought leaders who have the passion to develop and guide The Microelectronics Foundation for the upcoming years.

We are actively seeking Passionate Innovators who want to be invited to this summit conference table because of their desire and willingness to shape the models for The Microelectronics Foundation’s Gifted and Talented Students Program, the Signature Projects Program and the University Collaboration Program. Those seated at our summit table on July 16-17 will be entrusted with leadership roles to help the Microelectronics Foundation give back to its industry and benefit our communities.

Working Agenda:

Working with a small group of initial thought leaders for this Summit on Innovation, we created our working agenda. The purpose of this agenda is to give enough direction to keep the meetings focus yet afford room for “thinking outside of the box” with regards to the direction of The Microelectronics Foundation.
