Coffee and Conversations with Dr. Robert Krim

March 24 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 pm

Free

The Independent Association of Framingham State Alumni (IAFSA) located at 42 Adams Road, Framingham is hosting a series of Coffee and Conversations. The series will continue March 24, 2022, 10:00 am-11:00 am onsite and/or Zoom.

We welcome Dr. Robert Krim, author of Boston Made: From Revolution to Robotics, Innovations that changed the world.

For four hundred years, Boston has been at the forefront of the world-changing innovation from starting the country’s first public school to becoming the first state to end slavery and giving birth to the telephone and Facebook. Dr. Krim will discuss how he identified the top 50 innovations from his list of 400, and how Framingham State is woven into two of them.

Dr. Robert Krim is a professor at Framingham State University and founded the Entrepreneur Innovation Center at FSU.

From a recent interview:

“I chose to make Framingham State University my current and the last stop in my career (I am a professor there now) after spending so many years studying innovation, because it has such a rich history of innovation. The great American educational innovator Horace Mann developed and opened this college to be the first college in the US to teach teachers how to teach. It was the keystone of setting up Massachusetts’ public education system, and it was established as the 8th women’s college in the US.”

The Coffee and Conversations monthly series creates a forum for fellowship amongst FSC/FSU alumni and the larger community. Each session will showcase the accomplishments of one FSC/FSU alumni or related person who will provide an overview of their work since graduating.

Please RSVP – 508-872-9770 or office@alumnihouse.org
