The ability for chemists to develop and communicate the value of their research as solutions for addressing challenges and opportunities faced by people and the planet is critical for 1) expanding personal professional development and career opportunities, 2) creating economic development and jobs, and 3) for demonstrating the value of chemistry – the central science! The Chemical Innovation and Entrepreneurship Council (CIEC) was formed to ensure that all members of the ACS – regardless of career stage or aspirations – have the opportunities and connections to be innovators who can knowledgeably and successfully transform their research into sustainable solutions to market opportunities. Join us and hear how the CIEC is working across the ACS to develop and share with ACS members roadmaps each of us can use to help successfully take the journey from researcher to innovator to a potential “start –up” whether as an “intra”preneur within an organization or as an “entre”preneur out on your own. Both require the same skills!
