The IP Section of the Office of Counsel and Technology Transfer host informational sessions to inform Laboratory inventors, project staff and other interested Laboratory professionals about issues relating to APL tech transfer. Innovation ΧΔ Lunchbox is a fun, bi-annual, lunchtime event for recognizing and celebrating APL's creative process and innovation. During the event an outside speaker shares his or her perspective on innovation.

Many of us are nostalgic for yesteryear's lunch boxes that showed off our favorite cartoon characters and movie stars. Today's modern "lunchbox" shows off the creative spirit - think of the Japanese Bento box, retro lunch boxes, virtual lunchbox communities sharing everything from music to new ideas...

So what's in your lunchbox? What creative ideas would you like to exchange with your colleagues?
