The 2022 EU-US Frontiers of Engineering symposium will be held October 19-22 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 and the Slovenian Academy of Engineering and supported by The Grainger Foundation and the National Science Foundation.
The preliminary program is posted here. More information will be posted as it develops.
We will reserve rooms for all attendees at the Hotel Park Bled according to your response on the travel form and send you confirmation the week before the symposium. See detailed travel information on the tabs at right.
