TEDx event to be held at Western Washington University in April 2015
Los Angeles, CA—January 15, 2015—Hanson Research Corporation, the pioneer of dissolution and diffusion test equipment, announced today that it would provide platinum sponsorship for a TEDx event held at Western Washington University on April 11, 2015 in Bellingham, Washington.
TED is a nonprofit devoted to spreading ideas, usually in the form of short, powerful talks (18 minutes or less). TED began in 1984 as a conference where Technology, Entertainment and Design converged, and today covers almost all topics — from science to business to global issues — in more than 100 languages. Meanwhile, independently run TEDx events help share ideas in communities around the world.
“Collaboration is key to finding creative new solutions to the problems we face. Whether it is finding a better method to test the quality of medicine or a better way to promote teamwork, collaboration and respect for the individual are key,” stated Royal Hanson, CEO of Hanson Research and Western Washington University Distinguished Alumnus 2013. “Hanson Research is proud to sponsor TEDxWWU to help promote these important values.”
“The support from forward-thinking companies such as Hanson Research make positive change a reality,” stated Danica Kilander, WWU Leader Coordinator. “We are grateful to have partners that understand the importance of society as a whole and the effect that changemaking activities can have on the world around us.”
TEDxWWU kicks off Western Washington University’s first ever Week of Active Minds Changing Lives, which is designed to engage campus and community members in activities, seminars, and workshops all across campus and disciplines and draws attention to changemaking activities at WWU.
