This is just a quick post to give readers a heads-up about two events happening in Portland on April 22, 2017.
First up is the second annual Oregon Science Startup Forum, presented by the American Chemical Society’s Portland Section. The forum provides a one-day crash course in science entrepreneurship.
OSSF will run from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. in the Collaborative Life Sciences Building, which is part of Oregon Health and Science University’s waterfront campus. Cost is $30 student/post-doc/unemployed or $55 general admission.
More details are available on the OSSF website.
Nearby at Tom McCall Waterfront Park will be the Portland version of the March for Science events being held in Washington, D.C., and several hundred other cities worldwide. The events also coincide with Earth Day.
March for Science PDX will run from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. A march route and more information about the local event’s mission and values is available online.
Other cities in Oregon holding science-related march events or rallies include Salem, Corvallis and Eugene.
