2023 German-American Frontiers of Engineering Symposium

At-a-Glance

The 2023 German-America Frontiers of Engineering symposium will be held March 22-25 in Jülich, Germany. Sixty highly accomplished early-career engineers from Germany and the United States will meet for an intensive 2-1/2 day symposium on developments at the cutting edge of engineering technology in four areas. 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 transatlantic network of world-class engineers. GAFOE is carried out in cooperation with the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation and supported by The Grainger Foundation.

More information will be posted as it becomes available.
