FPIRC Video Showcases Conference’s Fluid Power Panel Discussion

FPIRC 2015Earlier this month, the Center for Compact and Efficient Fluid Power posted a video from the inaugural FPIRC, which was hosted at Vanderbilt University, in October 2014.  If you missed it, you can watch the film showcases the panel on public-private partnerships in innovation, research to marketplace opportunities, and the need for an educated workforce.

FPIRC15 is expected to bring the same quality of discussion as last year and will be held October 14-16 at the Radisson Blu Hotel in Chicago.  The event is co-sponsored by NFPA and the CCEFP.

The goal of FPIRC is to become the premier fluid power technical conference in the United States. The conference vision holds fluid power as THE technology of choice for power generation, transmission, storage, and motion control. Technical presenters and attendees include leading academic researchers, sponsored students, experts and practitioners from the field.
