Technology Commercialization Workshop

Technology Commercialization Workshop is a one day crash course to learn how to develop, market, and make money off your technology ideas. It is taught by angel investor and serial entrepreneur, Darryl Lesiuk. Darryl Lesiuk is CEO of Technology Commercialization Partner (TCP), with expertise in taking business concepts and developing them into long term sustainable entities. 

The workshop will culminate in a pitch competition where participants will pitch their business concept to a panel of judges for a split prizes amounting to $1,000! .

Nano Symposium
The Alberta Nanotechnology Symposium is a research event co-hosted by the University of Alberta and University of Calgary nanoGroups. This event is geared toward sharing knowledge, as well as to promote the development of new collaborations with experts in the field. Undergraduate students, graduate students, post-doctoral fellows, and faculty across Alberta are invited to share their research in nanotechnology through oral and poster presentations. This symposium provides an opportunity to enhance knowledge in nanotechnology and facilitates an environment conducive for collaboration.

nanoNexus is an evening student-industry mixer that brings together members of the nanotechnology community to build relationships crucial to the ongoing scientific or industrial development.  The target audience includes industry professionals, governmental stakeholders, and students/ academics from the U of A, the U of C, and NAIT.

             Let's Talk NanoScience
Let's Talk NanoScience is a one-day symposium for Grade 11 and 12 students hosted by Let’s Talk Science and U of A Nanotechnology Group, in partnership with the National Institute for Nanotechnology – Canada’s flagship nanotechnology institute. The goal of this symposium is to introduce senior level high school students to graduate students and researchers, as well as to the cutting-edge advancements in science and technology that are happening in their own backyard. In its inaugural year 165 students from three local high schools participated. The event will host 3-4 expert nanotechnology speakers from campus and NINT and consist of tours and hand-on demos including gold nanoparticle synthesis.
