2021 German-American Frontiers of Engineering Symposium

At-a-Glance

The 2021 German-America Frontiers of Engineering symposium was held virtually, March 17-19, 2021. Sixty of the most promising engineers under the age of 45 from Germany and the United States met for an intensive 2-1/2 day symposium on developments at the cutting edge of engineering technology in four areas: Quantum Computing, Carbon Capture and Utilization, Biologization, and Manufacturing 4.0. The event is intended to facilitate international and cross-disciplinary research collaboration, promote the transfer of new techniques and approaches across disparate engineering fields, and encourage the creation of a transpacific network of world-class engineers. GAFOE is carried out in cooperation with the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation and supported by The Grainger Foundation and the National Science Foundation.

The program is available here.
