Celebrate Invention 2020

Join members of the University of Michigan research community, leaders from promising U-M startups, and alumni from around the world for the first-ever virtual Celebrate Invention.

To mark the 20th anniversary of U-M’s largest annual event dedicated to inventorship, entrepreneurism and impact, we are expanding the event across several days with live-streamed content and recordings available to alumni and startups around the world.

Join us as we honor U-M inventors, discuss the growing impact of U-M innovations, and explore ways to build on our collective success.
