2022 EU-US Frontiers of Engineering Symposium

At-a-Glance

The 2022 EU-US Frontiers of Engineering symposium will be held October 20-22 in Bled, Slovenia. Sixty of the most promising early career engineers from the US and EU will meet for an intensive 2-1/2 day symposium to discuss cutting-edge developments in four topic areas: Supply Chain/Logistics; Post Lithium-Ion Batteries; Zero-Carbon Buildings; Prosthestics and AI. The event facilitates international and cross-disciplinary research collaboration, promotes the transfer of new techniques and approaches across disparate engineering fields, and encourages the creation of a transatlantic network of world-class engineers.

The symposium will be hosted in partnership with the European Council of Academies of Applied Sciences, Technologies, and Engineering

More information will be posted as it develops.
