The Foundation organizes invitational workshops and mini-workshops, each involving a range from 20 to 100 participants. 

Attended by thought leaders from industry, academia, government, and others, these workshops produce roadmaps of technical, preclinical, and clinical studies needed to further the development and adoption of focused ultrasound. The workshops also lay the groundwork for collaborations between manufacturers, academic research laboratories, and industry and academia.

The Foundation has organized the following workshops to promote collaboration amongst a wide range of stakeholders:
