The 2020 EU-US Frontiers of Engineering symposium will be held November 15-17, 2021 at either Nokia Bell Labs in Murray Hill, New Jersey or the National Academies' Beckman Center in Irvine, California, depending on Bell Labs' reopening status. 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 areas: Advances in Deep Learning for ICT Problems, Applications and Uses of Graphene, Modernizing the Electrical Grid, and Technologies for the Detection and Treatment of Dementia. 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. 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 2021 EU-US FOE Symposium.
More information will be posted as it develops.
