CCEFP Webinar to Cover State of the CCEFP Next Week

The 2018-19 CCEFP Webinar Series is underway and covers a number of fluid power research projects supported by the NFPA Education and Technology Foundation Research Supplements. The next episode, taking place January 23 at 12 pm CST, will feature the State of the CCEFP, presented by CCEFP Director Prof. Zongxuan Sun at the University of Minnesota. The presentation will give updates on fluid power research projects and their impacts, outline overarching research strategy for the center, and provide other progress updates.

The webinar series is a great opportunity to learn more about fluid power research projects and how they benefit this industry as well as contribute to the emerging workforce. It is open to CCEFP industry consortium members, NFPA members, and academic partners of these organizations. The monthly webcast series will showcase a number of the other Research Supplement recipients throughout the upcoming months.
