MEREDA’s Morning Menu – The Initiative for Digital Engineering and Life Sciences (IDEALS): Portland’s New Roux Campus and the Effect on Maine Real Estate
The Roux Campus of Northeastern University is replacing the industrialized B&M Baked Bean site with a high tech hub for education and innovation in the fields of artificial intelligence, digital engineering, life sciences, and medicine. Charles E. Hewett, Ph.D., Executive Director of both the Institute for Digital Engineering and Life Sciences (IDEALS) and the Roux Family Foundation, will discuss his plans for this game-changing campus on the Portland Waterfront.
The world is being radically transformed by artificial intelligence and other advanced technologies. In 2020, Northeastern launched the Roux Institute to build expertise at the intersection of humans and machines. The institute offers graduate education and research capabilities in areas that will revolutionize life and work: AI, computer and data sciences, digital engineering, and the advanced life sciences and medicine. Many community leaders expect the new Roux Institute, with its prominent new location, to transform the Portland economy, and take us into a new stage of growth and economic development.
MEREDA Board Member, and attorney at Bernstein Shur, David Soley, will moderate this discussion.
Make plans to join us on September 15th to learn more about this exciting new development. To register and for more information, click here:
