Together with its Mountain West Innovation Summit co-hosts and National Commissioners
Dr. Ed Seidel, President of the University of Wyoming, Mr. Greg Hill, Chairman and COO, Hess Corporation, and Dr. John Wagner, Director of Idaho National Laboratory, the Council brought together leaders from across the country from academia, national labs and industry to benchmark national and regional innovation best practices, network with peers to seek partnerships, and expand America’s regional innovation geography. Highlighting the event were three keynote speakers:
