They are free and open to the public.
The lectures will cover the overall process of inventing, from initial idea to commercialized product, including intellectual property considerations, finding financing, and starting an invention-based business.
Dr. Cairns is a serial entrepreneur who founded Ocean Design Inc. now Teledyne Oil and Gas, the world's leader in subsea electrical and fiber optic interconnect systems.
Each lecture will last an hour and will be followed by questions and discussion.
