The 2022 EU-US Frontiers of Engineering symposium was held October 19-22 in Bled, Slovenia. Sixty of the most promising early career engineers from the US and EU met for an intensive 2-1/2 day symposium to discuss cutting-edge developments in four topic areas: Prosthestics and AI; Supply Chain/Logistics; Post Lithium-Ion Batteries; and Zero-Carbon Buildings. 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 was hosted in partnership with the European Council of Academies of Applied Sciences, Technologies, and Engineering and the Slovenian Academy of Engineering and supported by these sponsors.
IAS will reserve rooms for all attendees at the Hotel Park Bled according to your response on the travel forms from NAE (US attendees) and EuroCASE (EU attendees) and send you confirmation the week before the symposium. EU attendees should contact Nadia at Euro-CASE or Irena at IAS for information about making hotel and travel arrangements. See detailed travel information on the tabs at right.
