Seminars, as the previous poster mentioned, is a great way to be in the same room as other researchers. One thing I found particular helpful is to talk to the organizers of these seminars as they can hook you up to local events that you may not have been aware of.

Another useful channel are newsletters that your local economic development organization sends out. You can do a Google search for local entrepreneurship, technology, etc organizations and get on their newsletters. In NC we have the Council for Economic Development and in their weekly newsletter they always have a section on partner events in the area that are really useful. These would be more targeted than Meetups and other casual meetings.

Good luck.
