The 2011 EU-US Frontiers of Engineering was held November 3-5, 2011, at the Arnold and Mabel Beckman Center in Irvine, CA.. 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: Sustainable Cities, Manufacturing . . .The Future, Smart Grid, and Networks in Biology. The event facilitates 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.
The National Academy of Engineering would like to express its gratitude to our meeting sponsors for their support of the 2011 EU-US FOE Symposium.
