Held from 14-16 April 2014, InnovFest 2014 will bring together like-minded research scientists, industry experts, tech transfer professionals, entrepreneurs and investors with a theme of “Asian Innovations Going Global”, where the following four key topics will be covered:

  • Ageing and the Silver Industry

  • Urbanization and Future Cities

The festival will feature pre-conference workshops, conducted by local and international thought leaders in the areas of mentoring, marketing of technologies, IP valuation, leveraging upon IP to boost productivity and medical device development. There will also be two focused technology forums on the potential of membranes as a separation technology and new applications in graphene technology.
