Awards ceremony among series of events planned for Sept. 12–16 to celebrate university’s culture of research and entrepreneurship
Thirty Case Western Reserve faculty members will be honored for their impressive records of research and entrepreneurship during an awards ceremony Thursday, Sept. 15, as part of the university’s inaugural Innovation Week.
“Since joining the university just six weeks ago, I’ve been blown away by the ingenuity in labs and classrooms across campus,” said Michael Oakes, senior vice president for research and technology management. “It’s important to come together and celebrate as we elevate and grow our problem-solving research enterprise. This week of events, and the awards ceremony in particular, is our first opportunity to do just that.”
The ceremony—which is free and open to the entire Case Western Reserve community—will be held Thursday, Sept. 15, from 4 to 6 p.m. in the Thwing Center ballroom. Attendees can enjoy flatbread and skewer stations before hearing opening remarks by Provost Ben Vinson III and the overall awards ceremony, emceed by Michael Haag, executive director of technology management.
