Be the FIRST-To-Know


Connect, Collaborate, and Conduct Real Science

The IFT FIRST Innovation Lab isn’t a passive lecture or uninspired product demo - it’s the ultimate immersive experience that will allow you to collaborate with your peers, build career-enhancing relationships, ideate leading-edge solutions, and pressure-test your ideas in an interactive environment.

You’ll work through a realistic product development cycle - identifying your target audience, creating and challenging applicable actions to address the most pressing crises facing the world today, and even prototyping your ideas. Attend IFT FIRST for this and many other opportunities to get inspired.
