UC Berkeley 2020 Fall Technology Innovation Forum

November 6, 2020

We are thrilled to bring together an inspiring and diverse group of teams to share their experiences bringing new innovations to Berkeley at the Fall Technology Innovation Forum. The event was planned as a part of the Berkeley Changemaker Technology Innovation program. Awardees of the Berkeley Changemaker Technology Innovation Grants and leaders of Berkeley Connected Campus projects will present their innovative projects and experiments.

Each team will present what they have built or created to date, with host, UC Berkeley CTO Bill Allison. The conference theme Innovation in the Time of Coronavirus aims to show how the work of these teams is not only important and relevant now — but also for a post-pandemic future. The forum is open to students, staff, faculty, alumni, and the general public.


The Forum was originally envisioned as an all-day event in a venue like the MLK center. Given the pressures of the pandemic on our community, we have scaled back and are hosting the event as two one-hour webcasts. We've adopted a lightning talk format that keeps things concise but impactful. The webcasts will be streamed on Nov. 17 and Nov. 18 at noon. Presenters will join the webcast to exchange ideas and answer questions via chat during the broadcast. After the event the full webcast video as well as each individual segment will be available for on-demand viewing.
