2023 EU-US Frontiers of Engineering Symposium

At-a-Glance

The 2023 EU-US Frontiers of Engineering symposium was hosted by Nokia Bell Labs October 15-18 in Murray Hill, New Jersey. 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: Future Challenges in Additive Manufacturing; Clean Hydrogen; the Quantum Era Challenge; and the Computational Era of Life Sciences. 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 is supported by Nokia Bell Labs, The Grainger Foundation, and the National Science Foundation.
