We are excited to announce the Collaboratory hosted its 2,500th visitor this month! As you may know, The Collaboratory (formerly I2E2) launched nine years ago as a gateway to Olin for external academic visitors wishing to learn from Olin’s innovative educational model. To celebrate this milestone in Olin’s external impact, we plan to have a celebration in October to commemorate the occasion. Stay tuned for more details!
This past week we hosted a dean from American University in Beirut, who met with Mark Somerville and shared information on their 3-week “Humanitarian Engineering” program in collaboration with several NGO’s and agencies serving refugees from Syria. They invite Olin students to get involved with this initiative.
This week we’ll welcome:
Next week we’ll host:
- Thursday, October 4: IBM Watson (NY)
- Friday, October 5: Pandit Deendayal Petroleum University (PDPU) India
Upcoming visits include: Embraer SSA Aerospace (join us for lunch!) and Anglia Ruskin University (UK)
If you’d like to get involved with these visitors, or with the Collaboratory in general, please contact SHARON BREITBART or KRISTIN CASASANTO. @OCCOLLABORATORY
