In the early months of 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic suddenly transformed the way the world works and collaborates. With all work-related travel abruptly curtailed and most professionals working from home, the daily work environment shifted to an ecosystem enabled by online communication and collaboration tools. In 2021, workflows continue to evolve for both universities and corporations - to better support R&D, education, and ideation. This panel will discuss how COVID-19-inspired innovation ecosystems have changed – for better or worse – university-company collaborations. Panelists will share personal observations, challenges, results, and ideas for the future. Panelists: Sheri A. Brodeur (Director of Corporate Relations), MIT, Cambridge, USA Randy Katz (Vice-Chancellor for Research), UC Berkeley, USA Xue (Steve) Liu (McGill University and VP R&D Samsung AI Center Montreal), Canada Stefanie Molthagen-Schnöring (VP for Research & Transfer), HTW Berlin, Germany Sheng-Ying (Aithne) Pao (NTHU), Hsinchu City, Taiwan
