As a member of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) – Industrial Liaison Program (ILP), Welsh Government is able to facilitate an opportunity for a small number of Welsh businesses to attend the following 4/5-day missions.

2023 MIT Digital Technology and Strategy Conference: Harnessing AI to Accelerate Digital Transformation – 25 to 26 October 2023 - Mission date: 23 to 27 October 2023 

Digital transformation is revolutionizing the way enterprises develop, produce, promote, and distribute products and services. By integrating digital technologies into their operations and processes, organizations can foster innovation, boost productivity, and unlock significant value.

2023 MIT Research & Development Conference: Vision for Transformative Impact – 15 to 16 November 2023 - Mission date: 13 to 17 November 2023

MIT is known for its nexus of education, research, and innovation, producing published research, accomplished students, and impactful startups that are building the future. This year, we explore an MIT vision of emerging technology and its anticipated impacts on the world in a unique way. MIT’s new President, Sally Kornbluth will share her vision of MIT’s future, and we will hear from the leadership of MIT’s 5 schools and 1 college on what is currently a “hot topic” within their school as well as what is “warming up.” We will explore many of those subjects more deeply in our technology tracks in Energy, Biotech, Materials, Manufacturing, Mobility, and Fintech.

The conference entry fee is already included through the Welsh Government membership of ILP. In addition, Welsh Government will provide up to 50% match funding contribution to participating companies specifically towards:

  • Return flights 
  • Transfers to hotel in Boston
  • 3 nights bed and breakfast accommodation 

As a result, the anticipated cost to your business in attending this conference is estimated to be approximately £1,000 to £1,500.
