Building on a 15-year alliance, the MIT and Accenture Convergence Initiative for Industry and Technology brings together Accenture’s technology, strategy, and industry experts with the best minds from across MIT. This bold collaboration is accelerating the adoption of new disruptive technologies, providing research insights to improve decision making, and helping industry and technology leaders better understand how they can maximize the power of convergence to re-imagine industries and create new opportunities.
