Networks-ROR Sessions Scheduled

All Networks and Boundariless Collaboration Research Team

An interactive session with attendees to address a real-world technical challenge faced by IRI members. IRI member companies were asked to submit their company’s problem in advance and at least one was chosen to be addressed. A representative from the selected company will attend to present the problem, and attendees will work to develop a creative solution, using a variety of methods developed by the Boundariless Collaboration team and their partner, Carnegie Mellon University’s Human-Computer Interaction Unit. It’s a great opportunity to put your expertise to use and network with R&D experts from a broad range of industries.
