Technological Advances in Science, Energy, Health, and the Environment
October 18, 2017 - October 21, 2017
Two British IVLP participants with professional backgrounds in journalism and STEM policy advocacy will be in Cleveland to explore the wide array of innovations under development here along with understanding the institutions and individuals behind scientific advances. The visitors will meet with the Great Lakes Energy Institute, Cleveland Clinic Innovations, Kent State University’s Liquid Crystal Institute, and Case Western Reserve University’s Think[Box] and Interactive Commons. Through these site visits and tech demonstrations, this program aims to enhance partnerships for innovation and introduce the delegates to cutting edge technology across multiple sectors.
International Visitor Leadership (IVLP) Program
Each year, over 300 professionals from around the world visit Northeast Ohio through IVLP. Sponsored by the U.S. Department of State, these visitors have been identified by U.S. embassies as emerging leaders in their fields. Over 50 Nobel Laureates and 335 current or former Chiefs of State or Heads of Government are alumni of this program.
By connecting with foreign leaders we strengthen Northeast Ohio’s commercial, cultural, and educational ties with the rest of the world. For more information, contact Katie Ferman, Program Officer, at firstname.lastname@example.org or click here. To get involved as a Citizen Diplomat, click here.
