NFPA Members Invited to Inaugural Industry Engagement Committee (IEC) Summit for Fluid Power Research

The Center for Compact and Efficient Fluid Power (CCEFP) invites you to the inaugural Industry Engagement Committee (IEC) Summit at the Georgia Institute of Technology, February 2 – 4, 2015, to help influence the direction of U.S. academic fluid power research, meet one-on-one with faculty and students, and network with your colleagues in the industry.

All NFPA members are invited. This meeting is especially well suited for a technical audience such as engineering, but marketing and human resource professionals will find it beneficial as well.

The IEC Summits are designed to focus on the research that is underway between the CCEFP and its industry supporters, and to provide you the opportunity for input and insight into the direction the research projects take. The IEC Summits will prove essential for cementing a close working relationship between academic fluid power research in the U.S. and those working within the industry.

IEC Summit Highlights:

  • Summit theme—Medical and Industrial Applications
  • Listen in on over a dozen research project and testbed presentations
  • Participate in discussion sessions on how to further advance research project direction
  • Tour Georgia Tech’s cutting edge robotics and/or manufacturing institute
  • Casual networking dinners with students, professors and industry attendees

We encourage you to invite others from your organization to join us to learn the latest in creative solutions to overcome hydraulic and pneumatic technical challenges. All are welcome!
