The live webcast was co-sponsored by the California Institute for Telecommunications and Information Technology (Calit2).

§ Where do new and commercially valuable technologies come from?
§ What is the role of research universities in commercialization?
§ How can universities balance societal pressure for bringing research to market with remaining unfettered by market prospects?
