"Strengthening Industry Collaborations with Academia"
August 1-2 - KY Nano/AM Symposium and Joint Industry Day
ABOUT The Nano/AM Symposium
The purpose of 2018 KY Nano/AM Symposium is to bring together researchers/users in the advanced manufacturing fields of additive manufacturing and micro/nanotechnology to discuss new findings, share results, discuss applications, debate the future, and network with one another. The 2018 Nano/AM Symposium is open to all scientists, engineers, and students from a variety of disciplines including microtechnology, nanotechnology, 3D printing, additive manufacturing, healthcare, energy, advanced materials, MEMS, biotechnology, commercial products, defense, and nano-education. The goal of the symposium is to strengthen the collaboration between industry and academia in the above targeted areas. Participants will hear exciting presentations about the latest nano/AM technologies, learn about existing state-of-the-art core facilities available to the public, and discuss ways that industry can access a wide variety of academic resources, including their most valuable resource – creative, hard-working students. The 2-day symposium agenda will consist of parallel sessions for both industry and academia, several joint keynote presentations, poster presentations, sponsorship opportunities, food and refreshments, core facility tours, and a valuable evening networking reception.
