The chasm between basic and applied research to commercialization is known as the Valley of Death. SRI International—an independent, non-profit research institute with more than USD 4 billion of research—will share its best practices honed over 70+ years to bridge this divide. In partnership with MarketsandMarkets™, we’ll showcase recent megatrends that are disrupting markets, and how to harness these trends as unparalleled opportunities to innovate and commercialize.

With the ever-increasing complexity of industry eco-systems, every innovation is bound to be impacted by uncertainties creeping through complex and distant nodes. Nobody can afford to overlook these uncertainties anymore since the impact can result in millions of dollars in lost revenue.

MarketsandMarkets™ will demonstrate its flagship product— KnowledgeStore—to showcase how megatrends are disrupting all industries and leading to new innovation opportunities in the backdrop of rising uncertainties.
