Each October in Boston, the HUBweek festival connects researchers, creators, and innovators who can work together to make a real-world social impact in Boston and around the world. The week-long festival, co-founded by MIT, featured more than 150 events, 275 speakers, and nearly 30,000 attendees last year. Read more about the 2016 festival.

The 2017 festival will take place October 10–15 and will feature the new HUB headquarters—a transformed Boston City Hall Plaza—and a Future Forum panel moderated by New York Times bestselling author Malcolm Gladwell that will include author and surgeon Dr. Atul Gawande.

Other elements of the festival are in their formative stages and submissions are now open to participate. HUBweek’s Collaboration Call is open through May 5 and prospective collaborators can participate in three featured areas: host, share, and create.

More than 75 MIT alumni have presented at HUBweek since its inception. See the full list of alumni who participated in 2016 and 2015, including alumni promoting Boston’s local food revolution and heating and cooling liquid without electricity.

For more information on being part of HUBweek 2017, contact the festival’s curatorial team or visit the HUBweek FAQ page.

HUBweek’s Collaboration Call closes this Friday, May 5. Share your ideas today!
