Help Shape MichBio U in 2015
We launched MichBio U this past year to provide additional knowledge and education for our companies in an easy, webinar-based format. Response to our programming was very positive and we hope to build on that foundation going forward.
So help us shape the MichBio curriculum in 2015. Be a speaker and/or suggest a topic!
MichBio U programming focuses on subject matter related but not limited to:
- operations and organization
- business development, finance and risk management
- research and development
- regulatory affairs and reimbursement strategies
- legal and intellectual property protection
- investment and commercialization
- science and technology
- public policy
Webinars are 45-60 min in duration and are meant to be educational in nature and not perceived to be infomercials. We endeavor to provide provocative, cutting-edge and in-demand subject matter. All webinars are recorded and available to members in our digital archives.
MichBio will review and evaluate session proposals based on the following criteria:
- Educational value
- Topic timeliness
- Subject matter appeal
- Appropriate audience type
- Speaker qualifications and expertise
- Newsworthiness and novelty
Speakers agree to offer their presentation on a complimentary basis; no presenters are financially reimbursed for their service.
Participation as a speaker/presenter in the MichBio U program is available to MichBio member companies only. A nonmember can partner with a MichBio member on a proposal, provided the member submits the proposal. As always, nonmembers are encouraged to join MichBio and enjoy the benefits of belonging to Michigan’s statewide biosciences industry association.
Please forward any proposals or questions regarding this new program to David McGuire, Director of Membership & Operations, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
