The following email was sent today to the MIT community by Provost Martin A. Schmidt.

To the members of the MIT community:

I write to invite you to an MIT community forum on The Engine Working Groups that will take place on Wednesday, March 22, 2017, 5:00 p.m. - 6:30 p.m. in Kirsch Hall (32-123). The Working Groups were launched in December 2016 to guide the development of Institute policies and procedures related to work of The Engine, a new innovation accelerator for startups pursuing capital- and time-intensive technologies.

During the forum, we will hear updates on The Engine and preliminary recommendations from the Working Group chairs. Speakers include: Executive Vice President & Treasurer Israel Ruiz; President & CEO of The Engine Katie Rae; chair of MIT's The Engine Advisory Committee, Professor Anantha Chandrakasan; and the Working Group chairs: Professors Martin Culpepper, Timothy Swager, Klavs Jensen, Dick Yue, Fiona Murray, and Vladimir Bulovic.

Also, a significant amount of time will be dedicated to hearing from the community through Q&A and sharing of additional ideas. As a reminder, an idea bank is still active for capturing ideas as well.

I hope very much that you will be able to join us. To register, please visit this website.


Martin A. Schmidt
