The Sage Assembly Experience

The 2018 Sage Assembly is the eighth in a series of Open Innovation events held by Sage Bionetworks.

Attending an Open Assembly is a unique experience.  From the structured part of the conference, you can expect rapid-fire project descriptions ranging from open genomic data sharing to novel education methods to in-depth keynotes on how data drives tornado models and micro lending. But you can also expect to be turned out into the host city and asked to interact directly with other attendees, local citizens, nature, data, and your own personal aspirations.

There are opportunities for informal engagement through our receptions and break times, and you can expect to be called to the podium to speak. We provide nearly every attendee, from Nobel laureates to children, the opportunity to step forward and tell their story through the context of that year’s Assembly theme. The agenda is curated around a careful narrative arc, aimed to create both short-term and long-term change for participants.
