MIT Sloan Professor Selected to Co-Lead University-Wide Innovation Initiative

300px-MITSloanE62FrontLast month, the president of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) launched a university-wide innovation initiative and named two faculty members to lead it, including an entrepreneurship professor from the MIT Sloan School of Management.

MIT President L. Rafael Reif announced the creation of an MIT Innovation Initiative in an email to the MIT community on October 17th, naming Sloan Professor Fiona Murray and Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Professor Vladimir Bulović to lead the effort. He also named a 19-member advisory committee made up of faculty from across MIT to help develop recommendations on next steps.

“I am indebted to Profs. Murray and Bulović and to the entire Advisory Committee for taking on this important challenge,” Reif wrote. “I look forward to seeing their recommendations. And I am eager to see how this Innovation Initiative can magnify the creative power of the people of MIT.”

Reif has asked Murray and Bulović to engage in conversations with faculty, staff, students and alumni from across MIT and to deliver a report by Jan. 31st outlining recommendations for how to move forward with the Innovation Initiative.
