About HUBweek

This is HUBweek

HUBweek is a creative festival that celebrates innovation at the intersection of art, science, and technology.

Founded by The Boston Globe, Harvard University, MIT and Mass General Hospital, HUBweek is a first-of-its-kind civic collaboration that brings together the most creative and inventive minds making an impact in Boston and around the world.

At HUBweek, we believe that sharing accelerates innovation and creativity and that Boston is where the future is being built. We invite you to join over 70 organizations and 50,000 participants in 2016 for a look behind-the-scenes – visit our labs, our companies, our creative spaces. Meet those who are making an impact, from policy leaders and researchers to investors, founders and creatives. Explore, imagine, and exchange ideas that are shaping your tomorrow. Join us at HUBweek.

Change Makers at HUBweek

From fixing democracy and pioneering innovation in VR to growing organs on chips and closing the healthcare disparity gap, the work happening in Boston is changing the world for the better. Meet some of the incredible change makers who are behind the headlines and find them at HUBweek. We’ll be sharing highlights on many more in the weeks to come.
