Activate 2018: 'Like Getting a Jolt of Energy'

Activate is the event of our year, every year. It’s the one day when the entire Cyclotron Road community is in the same room, sharing ideas and insights. But most importantly, it’s when our fellows get to shine and show the power of their innovations.

This year’s event was truly invigorating. Not only did our fellows rock their presentations, we also marked the occasion by dropping our first ever Impact Report and sharing some of the insights we’ve gleaned from analyzing data about our program and the larger issue we’re trying to solve: the lack of support in today’s research ecosystem for scientists on the path from science to product.

The event made Cyclotron Road co-founder and managing director Sebastien Lounis more optimistic than ever about our program and its future. Read his essay in Phase Change to see why.
