Hello I-Trep Stakeholders in New Hampshire,

We hope that this email finds you safe and coping with the uncertainty of the time.  I am sure that you will not be surprised that we have decided to cancel our 2020 In-person I-Trep Summer Course and plan to offer our next full course in June of 2021.

In our continued commitment to providing skill development in biomedical entrepreneurship, we are excited to offer an opportunity to participate in the pilot/beta test for our virtual training the week of August 17-21, 2020.  This workshop will be tailored to meet the needs and interests of selected participants.   We understand that advanced planning is challenging right now so the time commitment will be determined in consultation with those selected to participate.  Please see that application to learn more about topics that might be covered.

Please share this with your community and have anyone interested in participating fill out the attached application and email it to me (tina.thornton@uvm.edu) by July 20.  This application is also available on our website.

Best regards,
