First Engineering Research Conference Draws Federal, State, Local Speakers

Over 300 curious engineers and business partners expanded their knowledge and understanding of current research and technology transfer in water and the environment, energy and sustainability, advanced manufacturing, transportation and infrastructure, biomedical and health and more. Together, through collaboration, discussion and networking, we made strides to work together in advancing our nation’s research agenda – an agenda driven to make our world a better place.
