NFPA Members Encouraged to Attend CCEFP Industry University Engagement Summit for Fluid Power Research

The Center for Compact and Efficient Fluid Power (CCEFP) invites you to the Industry University Engagement Summit at Iowa State University, June 6 – 8, 2016 to meet one-on-one with faculty and students and network with colleagues in the industry.

The Industry Engagement Committee (IEC) of the CCEFP is part of the industry oversight structure that NFPA’s Education and Technology Foundation’s Pascal Society has helped put in place to make sure that the research strategy and projects conducted by the CCEFP serve the long-term needs of the fluid power industry. Twice a year, the committee holds a summit at a participating university to review progress on CCEFP research projects and to interact directly with the students performing the research.

NFPA members, current supporters, education partners, and anyone interested in getting involved in the activities of the The Pascal Society are welcome to attend. Full program and registration information can be found at: https://nfpahub.com/events/ccefp-industry-university-engagement-summit/.
