Lux executive summit announces 2007 speakers

New York, NY | Posted on July 16th, 2007

Corporations are changing how they innovate, relying on external technologies sourced from start-ups, research institutions, and even competitors. How will these players interact to bring science-driven innovation to market? This critical question will be answered by eminent speakers at the third annual Lux Executive Summit: Connecting Business with Science for Innovation, held on October 15-16, 2007 at the Charles Hotel in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

The Lux Executive Summit features exclusive presentations from Lux Research's world-renowned analyst team as well as from the corporate, start-up, financial, and academic fields.

"The Lux Executive Summit has always provided an open forum for the world's elite innovators to discuss the future of science and business," said Lux Research President Matthew Nordan. "This year's Summit will be the premier event for the commercialization of emerging technologies across nanotech, cleantech, and post-silicon electronics."
