*There will be a reception following the talk.*
This talk will focus on patterns in technological innovation - the process of taking science and technology to the marketplace – in a global context.

Where and how will the research behind these applications likely be accomplished, and what major markets will drive the development of new products and services? How are funding sources for technological innovation shifting? The talk will end with a discussion of the opportunities and challenges posed by modern innovation, and the actions individuals can take to increase their chances for successfully navigating in this dynamic environment.
