Dr. Sireli will wrap up the 2020 ASEM International Webinar Series in this session. She will also provide an overall perspective of innovation financing from the worldwide view to the United States, and to the U.S. states, including how innovation funding was affected by disruptive events in the past and initial projections for the short to mid-term future after the Covid-19 pandemic. She will focus on the state of North Carolina as an example. After that, she will follow with an emerging area that needs interdisciplinary and multi-sectoral support for innovation: the blue economy.About the Presenter
