Innovation symposium is a success

I’d like to thank everyone who attended and helped put together our E Kamakani Noi‘i innovation symposium held Jan. 13–14. We had a tremendous turnout and we continue to receive very positive feedback from people who attended.

As you know, at the symposium I presented the recommendations of our advisory council on innovation and technology advancement on what the University of Hawai‘i needs to do to create the 21st century capability for innovation and technology transfer.

An implementation plan will be developed based on the symposium discussions and the feedback we receive. I’d like to thank the advisory council for the time and effort they put into this.

As I said at the symposium, we know what we need to do to move forward, and the time is now. I’m very excited by the support expressed by the national experts and local business and government leaders who attended our symposium, and I am sure we will have more exciting developments to share with you in the coming months.

Speaker summaries, video of their presentations and supporting slides are available online.

Ground broken for nursing simulation center

The School of Nursing and Dental Hygiene held a groundbreaking ceremony earlier this month to launch construction of the UH Translational Health Science Simulation Center. The new $7.5 million center will be established in the School of Nursing and Dental Hygiene, where it will serve as a campus hub for interdisciplinary translational health science research, simulation and research education.

The center will be a state-of-the-art facility for clinical simulation for students, educators, practicing health-care providers and researchers.

This project is part of the university’s Project Renovate to Innovate initiative.
