Important events originally planned as in-person activities for this fall are now postponed due to surging COVID-19 numbers and rising concerns related to the Delta variant.
Out of an abundance of caution UNeMed is postponing the fall 2021 Technology Transfer Boot Camp and all 2021 Innovation Week events, including the Innovation Awards banquet.
One of the most meaningful aspects of Boot Camp are the in-person interactions between students that promotes deeper learning and understanding. Because those interactions cannot be replicated virtually, UNeMed is postponing until such time that in-person events are much safer.
Innovation Week and the Innovation Awards ceremony are also valuable events for UNeMed that feature robust networking opportunities among the University’s innovative faculty, staff and students. While it’s possible to host another virtual Awards program in 2021, UNeMed would rather wait, and hold a safe, in-person event that properly delivers the recognition University innovators so richly deserve.
