Teams of students from IdeaLab at Rochester Institute of Technology will be working this weekend to brainstorm solutions to solve medical-related problems faced by Rochester Regional Health System.
The RIT and RRHS Alliance IdeaLab is an interactive two-day seminar that will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, March 14, and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday, March 15 (with project presentations from 1 to 3 p.m.), at RIT’s Albert J. Simone Center for Student Innovation and Entrepreneurship, located in Student Innovation Hall.
“The IdeaLab@RIT began as a successful pilot program in April 2013, and the goal is to turn these projects into real products, services and potential new businesses,” said Richard DeMartino, endowed chair and director of the Simone Center. “This is a collaborative effort within all of the RIT colleges, including fields such as health sciences and technology, computing, industrial design and business.”
For the spring session, the following four projects have been identified by RRHS:
