With voters in Great Britain voting in July to exit the European Union, the news about the Eurozone — the EU plus other European countries — has been more about politics and economics. But Judith A. Sheft, associate vice-president of technology and enterprise development at New Jersey Institute for Technology, urges businesses to look at the big picture and the potential economic ties between New Jersey and Europe.

NJIT will host a forum on “European Union and U.S. Perspectives” on Thursday, September 22, from 9 a.m. to noon at the Nassau Club in Princeton. The forum will feature Stephen Ezell, vice president of global innovation policy at the Information Technology and Innovation Foundation; Ashley Rae Kark, CEO of BioJump; William J. Marshall, associate VP of government and military relations at the NJ Innovation Institute; and Marko Turpeinen, director of the Silicon Valley hub of EIT Digital.

Tickets are free. For more information, E-mail gtke@njit.edu or visit www.princeton-gtke.eventrbrite.com. The forum is sponsored by a grant from a delegation of the European Union to the U.S. and is hosted by the European American Chamber of Commerce of NJ, a Princeton-based group that promotes trade.
