Second Annual Site Visit and Industry Conference

webv.jpg

April 16-17th, 2013

The research group and staff at CURENT recently wrapped up their second annual Site Visit and Industry Conference. The three day event overlapped two major meetings in the center, and brought together nearly 200 faculty, students, and industry representatives from across the country.

The first day offered an opportunity for CURENT to showcase its research portfolio to industry partners and companies looking for potential collaborations. Invited speakers with an expertise in power systems and power electronics presented on CURENT-related research topics, and students in the center also had an opportunity to present their ongoing projects.

The second leg of the event brought representatives from the National Science Foundation and Department of Energy to campus to review the overall progress of the center. NSF and DOE personnel met with UT administrators, CURENT's leadership team, industry members, and students in the center to discuss benchmarks and future growth.

Partner school faculty and students from Northeastern University, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, and Tuskegee University were also in attendance to highlight their related research. Students from all four universities participated in research presentations, presented posters during the lab tour segment, and got a chance to meet and network at a student awards banquet.

This year's event was held at the Worlds Fair Park Holiday Inn, the Four Points Hotel, and the Min H. Kao Building on UT's campus. The 2014 Site Visit and Industry Conference at CURENT will take place in Knoxville again next April. CURENT-Logo_Transparent-tiny.png
