‘Innovation Hub’ Founding Host, Kara Miller, will Keynote the IP Awareness Summit in Boston

Kara Miller is not your typical journalist. She is founding Executive Editor and Host of ‘Innovation Hub” for public radio. Currently, she writes ‘The Big Idea’ column for the Boston Globe.

Whatever Ms. Miller does, she seems to be at the center of the trends and the circle of people responsible for the latest developments in science, technology, medicine and education.

She has accepted the Center for Intellectual Property Understanding’s invitation to deliver the keynote address at the 2023 Intellectual Property Awareness Summit in Boston on May 2nd. It is the first time IPAS is being held in Boston. For many, it is long overdue.

Ms. Miller has worked across radio, TV, and print for the past 15 years.

It spotlighted compelling thinkers and received the 2021 Clarion Award for Radio Talk or Interview Program.

“Few people understand how to protect their ideas, and that’s particularly true when it comes to those with fewer resources,” says Ms. Miller. “Bridging the divide empowers both individuals and businesses.”

Ms. Miller has moderated events hosted events for The International Women’s Forum, PBS Digital Media for STEM, Harvard Medical School, and The Museum of Science Boston.
