Registration is now open for the next CCEFP Summit, which will take place at the University of Minnesota, May 19-21, 2020.

The program features the latest developments in fluid power research projects, including projects awarded research supplements from the NFPA Foundation in 2019. Topics include:

  • Fluid Power Energy Conversion & Storage
  • Coatings and Fluids Efficiency Improvement
  • Pumps, Motors, and Valves Efficiency Improvements
  • Fluid and Electric Power Integration

Attendees will dive deeper into these topics with invited talks from research experts, industry presentations from alumni, and lab tours. Networking lunches and dinners throughout the event will provide time for industry representatives, professors, researchers, and students to make valuable connections with others in the community.

And, because of NFPA’s support of the summit through our research supplement program, we have five complimentary registrations to offer to interested members. If interested, contact Eric Lanke at The free passes will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis.
