Description:
The program today will be provided by Dr. Eric Barron, President of the Pennsylvania State University.

Eric J. Barron started his tenure as the 18th president of The Pennsylvania State University on May 12, 2014. Previously, Barron served as president of Florida State. He has nearly 35 years of leadership experience in academic administration, education, research and public service, as well as a track record as a talented manager of fiscal policy within large and complex institutions. Barron has re-energized the University’s focus on economic development with the creation of a new program, Invent Penn State. It is a Commonwealth-wide initiative to spur economic development, job creation, and student career success. It blends entrepreneurship-focused academic programs, business startup training and incubation, funding for commercialization, and university-community collaborations to facilitate the challenging process of turning research discoveries into valuable products and services that can benefit Pennsylvanians and humankind. Barron’s presentation will share how Invent Penn State is having an impact statewide and in our backyard. He will also provide a University update that will include time for Q&A.
