This fall, the Chemical Heritage Foundation will launch an annual symposium in Houston. We invite you to join us for this inaugural event, made possible through the generosity of the Ting Tsung and Wei Fong Chao Foundation, and produced in cooperation from the Rice Alliance for Technology and Entrepreneurship, the Richard E. Smalley Institute for Nanoscale Science and Technology, and the James T. Baker III Institute for Public Policy at Rice University.
During the full-day symposium, established and emerging leaders in the technical, entrepreneurial, and policy arenas will reflect on Houston’s past as a center for innovation and the ways in which the city is evolving to meet the needs of the future.
Each year the symposium’s theme(s) will link to key initiatives of the Greater Houston Partnership. This year’s panels will address Energy Alternatives for the Future, Genomics and Personalized Genomic Medicine, and Houston on the Molecular Frontier.
