2013 EU-US Frontiers of Engineering Symposium

At-a-Glance

The 2013 EU-US Frontiers of Engineering was held November 21-23, 2013, at Hotel Dolce Chantilly in Chantilly, France. About 60 outstanding engineers under the age of 45 met for an intensive 2-1/2 day symposium to discuss cutting-edge developments in four areas: Nanosensors, Big Data, the Future of Transportation, and Wireless Broadband. The event facilitated international and cross-disciplinary research collaboration, promoted the transfer of new techniques and approaches across disparate engineering fields, and encouraged the creation of a transatlantic network of world-class engineers. This symposium was hosted in partnership with the European Council of Academies of Applied Sciences, Technologies and Engineering and the National Academy of Technologies of France.

The National Academy of Engineering would like to express its gratitude to our meeting sponsors for their support of the 2013 EU-US FOE Symposium: The Grainger Foundation, U.S. National Science Foundation, and the National Academy of Technologies of France.
