The University’s Center for Globalization and Commerce will hold its inaugural Research Symposium on Monday, April 10, in the Gen Re Auditorium at the Stamford Campus.
Registration begins at 12:30 p.m., and the program starts at 1 p.m. A reception will follow, at 5:30 p.m.
The Research Symposium will bring together scholars from the Storrs and Stamford campuses of the University, and business and corporate leaders from Fairfield County, to engage in dialogue about the impact of globalization on commerce and economic development.
The goal is to identify high-priority research questions that can be investigated through a collaborative process involving both
academic researchers and experts from the business community.
Three themes will be addressed during the symposium: the impact of globalization on science and technology; the impact of globalization on human capital; and the impact of globalization on cultural diversity.
Each will be addressed by a panel of two UConn scholars, and two business and corporate experts, with a moderator posing questions.
The keynote speaker is Curt Hunter, dean of the School of Business.
Registration is $25 if paid before April 7, or $30 at the door.
The University’s Center for Globalization and Commerce is a joint endeavor between UConn Stamford and the Stamford Chamber of Commerce. For more information and to register, see: www.stamford.uconn.edu or www.stamfordchamber.com.
