Medical Device Retreat

October 27, 2015
UCI Institute for Innovation, The Cove

 

In response to the current CAI RFA, (http://uccai.ctsi.ucla.edu/pages/funding_opportunity) we are hosting a Medical Device Retreat to give applicants an opportunity for two-way communication with CAI site leaders and industry experts. The intent is to help applicants write a competitive proposal by providing real time feedback. This is also an opportunity for applicants to give a show and tell presentation to better inform the CAI leaders as to the nature, utility and commercial potential of their invention. Applicants are encourage to follow the link below to request a time slot. Confidential meetings with applicants will occur be between 9:00 am and noon, and then again between 2:00 pm and 5:00 pm.

9:00am - 12:00pm
Applicant private sessions (in-person or webcast) Session 1
Purpose:
Improve our effectiveness in identifying high quality projects; Provide applicants an opportunity to pitch their project and to receive feedback aimed at improving their proposal (and project); Provide two way communication in real time between applicants and reviewers / site leaders. This is the best mechanism to evaluate the team as well as the project; Expose outside experts to projects for the purpose of providing feedback, and to make business connections
Format:

  1. Private sessions will be in person or by webcast. The length of the session will be 15 to 30 minutes
  2. Make a short slide deck.
