2019 EU-US Frontiers of Engineering Symposium

At-a-Glance

The 2019 EU-US Frontiers of Engineering symposium will be held November 18 - 20 in Stockholm, Sweden. About 60 outstanding engineers under the age of 45 will meet for an intensive 2-1/2 day symposium to discuss cutting-edge developments in four areas: 5G and Internet of Things, Materials Engineering Enabled by Advances in Imaging, Systems Approaches to a Clean Environment, and Smart Manufacturing. 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 is hosted in partnership with the European Council of Academies of Applied Sciences, Technologies, and Engineering. The Royal Swedish Academy of Engineering Sciences (IVA) is serving as the administrator and organizer for the European side of the event.

The National Academy of Engineering would like to express its gratitude to The Grainger Foundation and the National Science Foundation for their support of the 2019 EU-US FOE Symposium.
