Rural Innovation

September 1st | 4-7pm | Turnbull Conference Center

Rural communities have long been seen as the heart of our nation. But they are also face unique challenges like providing affordable healthcare and high-quality education, expanding access to broadband internet, maintaining and modernizing aging infrastructure, and revitalizing declining economies — all while preserving the character that makes rural communities special.

In fall 2022, Collaborative Collision invites our research community to come together to explore interdisciplinary solutions to challenges facing rural America.

We encourage you to think beyond disciplinary boundaries and consider how you might combine your skills, expertise, and resources through Connector, how you will turn those connections into collaborations through Incubator, and what first steps towards a solution your team will propose at Accelerator.

Join us as we work to ensure that our neighbors in rural communities benefit from the discovery, creativity, and innovation taking place at Florida State University!
