Sci-ROI Annual Event 2017

Each year the Sci-ROI Annual Event convenes delegates from academia, government, and industry in India; all are interested in recruiting graduate and postdoctoral talent in science and engineering from the Midwest. The second Sci-ROI Annual Event took place on September 9th and 10th at the Biological Sciences Center at the University of Chicago and was hosted by UChicago Global, Science and Research Opportunities (Sci-ROI), and WINStep Forward. This two-day event consisted of lectures, panel discussions, poster sessions, and networking opportunities and featured speakers from DBT Wellcome Trust, numerous Indian Institutes of Technology, the Ministry of Science and Technology from the Government of India, among other leading institutions. The Sci-ROI Annual Event also provided an opportunity for graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, research scientists, scholars, and entrepreneurs to collaborate with senior policy makers, industry leaders, and scientists from India and promoted multi-level collaborations that spanned across disciplines and continents.
