ChileMass Innovation Day 2022
Strategic ideas and technologies
that will affect the way we live
The two-day event is positioned as an open meeting space for actors from the innovation ecosystems of Chile and the US. It is a great opportunity to listen to top leaders, and experts talk about the latest trends to promote fertile collaboration, exchange of skills, and the development of high-value business and technological ventures.
It also represents an opportunity to invite companies and universities in the United States to invest and collaborate with Chile and the Latam region.

Strengthen ChileMass’ work in Massachusetts through a conference that will address topics such as:
- Innovation in Times of ESG.
- The Cities of Tomorrow.
- The Life Science Revolution.
