 On Tuesday August 27, SMCM will host a free workshop on why and how local businesses can join MIPS, The Maryland Industrial Partnerships Program.

MIPS is an initiative of the A. James Clark School of Engineering’s Maryland Technology Enterprise Institute at the University of Maryland, which brings university innovation to the commercial sector by supporting university-based research projects to help Maryland companies develop technology-based products. The initiative has supported research projects with more than 400 different Maryland companies since 1987.

The workshop will be held on the campus of St. Mary’s College of Maryland on Tuesday, Aug. 27, from 2-3 p.m. in room 321 of the Library and Media Center. MIPS manager Ronnie Gist will give a presentation, followed by a question-and-answer period, and one-on-one meetings (additional time for individual meetings available from 3-4 p.m.).

RSVP by e-mailing Sabine Dillingham, director of research and sponsored programs at St. Mary’s College, at [email protected].
