Chancellor appoints advisory group to advance innovation ecosystem

A dedicated advisory group appointed by Chancellor Daniel Diermeier will identify additional ways Vanderbilt can nurture a thriving innovation economy in Nashville and Middle Tennessee.  

The group will build upon existing work to leverage Vanderbilt-driven research and innovation to support local community needs, attract entrepreneurial talent and venture investment, and expand our city and region’s innovation capacity. They also will examine infrastructure needs, including dedicated physical space, programs for collaboration and how to foster a culture of innovation.
