Workshop to highlight data as key to engine of automotive innovation

How can Windsor-Essex position itself to be a key player in the commercialization of data and intellectual property in the automotive sector — that question is at the heart of a workshop Wednesday, March 22, hosted by the Entrepreneurship Practice and Innovation Centre (EPICentre).

“Law and Entrepreneurship: Is Data the New Oil?” will engage academics, students, policy experts, and community leaders in conversations about automotive technologies and the innovation economy.

Panels will discuss data ownership and sharing, best practices in data collection and privacy, and policy surrounding innovation, intellectual property, and data. The day will conclude with a networking reception.

The workshop will run 1 to 5:30 p.m. at the Ciociaro Club, 3745 North Talbot Rd. Students are admitted free; proceeds of other ticket sales will support the Campus Food Pantry. Find an agenda and buy tickets on the event website.
